ResearcherID is your place to manage and share your professional information. Solve author identity issues while simultaneously adding dynamic citation metrics and collaboration networks to your personal profile.  For more info, please refer to the ResearcherID Fact Sheet.  With ResearcherID, you can:

Generate citation metrics from Web of Science

ResearcherID provides the global research community with an invaluable index to author information. By assigning a unique identifier to each author who participates, ResearcherID standardizes and clarifies author names and citations and makes your information search more straightforward and accessible.  Whether you are seeking citations for research, or leads to collaborators, thought leaders, speakers, editors, or reviewers, the unique ResearcherID will provide you with a clear avenue to the data you need.

Because ResearcherID is fully integrated with Web of Science™, you can use your profile to make sure you are getting properly credited for your work in Web of Science and use ResearcherID to find an author’s body of work.
