First, set up a populated ResearcherID on Publons of your publications in Web of Science.
Note: If you have recently updated or created your ResearcherID, it may take 2 weeks before you can see your ResearcherID information reflected in Web of Science.

For a group of papers you've authored, you can use the advanced metrics provided in InCites to get a deeper understanding of impact and performance. InCites metrics are based on your authored publications in Web of Science.
Note: Register an email address to sign into InCites from anywhere. If you are not on campus, and have not yet created an InCites account, you may need to install a UQ Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get access.
In the table you will be able to view performance metrics for your papers across different WOS categories - note: the Category Normalised Citation Impact should be interpreted with care, when there are less then 20 papers in a category.
InCites provides metrics for a varied perspective into your performance:
% Documents in Top 1%
The percentage of your papers that have been cited enough times to place them in the top 1% (when compared to papers in the same category, year, and of the same document type). You can also get the number of papers in the top 1%.
% Documents in Top 10%
The percentage of your papers that have been cited enough times to place them in the top 10%. This is normalized for category, year, and document type. You can also get the number of papers in the top 10%.
Category Normalized Citation Impact
CNCI is an indicator of impact normalized for subject focus, age, and document type. A CNCI value of one represents performance at par with world average, values above one are considered above average, and values below one are considered below average. A CNCI value of two is considered twice the world average.
% Industry Collaborations
The percentage of your papers produced with co-authors from industry.
% International Collaborations
The percentage of your papers produced with international co-authors.
To identify performance metrics for each paper you've authored, follow the Top papers in InCites instructions.

These citations may come from anywhere online:
Note: We recommend always using Google Scholar metrics alongside the numbers from Scopus or Web of Science.
It is still possible to see if your publication has been cited by other documents in the citation databases (Web of Science or Scopus), even if you have publications that are not indexed in those databases.
