The components of the researcher’s image: identification

How to create unique researcher’s identifiers in ORCID, Researcher ID, Google Scholar The rapid development of digital scientific content complicated search and identification of the authors of particular researches, Firstly, dozens of scientists around the world could have the same surname. Secondly, translating the same surname in different languages in different journals can have other rules of transliteration. At the same time, the development of international scientometric bases demands a clear author’s identification. To solve such problems, digital author identifiers are created. That allows associating the authors with the results of their research activity. We suggest you create and update your profile on popular services. How to register Author profile in ORCHID: guidelines (in Ukrainian) ORCID – an open-source, non-profit project for creating and maintaining a registry of unique researchers IDs, a transparent and holistic way to present research results. ORCID gives:

  • proper Author’s identification
  • guarantees the connection to other unique Author’s identifiers (AuthorID Scopus and ResearcherID та ін.)
  • reliable and unambiguous correlation of researchers’ information to the full, exact and up-to-date data about their scientific publications.

ResearcherID – an international system of personal identification of authors of scientific publications. It is used to identify authors in international databases of scientific publications, for instance, Web of Science. ResearcherID allows to:

  • create Author’s profile and link different variants of name and surname spelling in the Latin alphabet
  • form the list of own publications
  • define own scientometric data (citation index, h-index)
  • associate your profile with ORCID.

How to edit your Author’s profile in Scopus: guidelines (in Ukrainian) AuthorID Scopus – Author’s profile in Scopus, database which is forms automatically if even one article of the researcher appears in the database. AuthorID Scopus allows to: – edit Author’s profile and link different variants of name and surname spelling in Latin alphabet, choose the variant preferred by the Author – edit list of author’s publications in Scopus (delete the publications of other scientists and to add those which are absent) – define own scientometric indexes (citation index, h-index). Google Scholar– is a free-of-charge specialized search engine, that allows finding bibliographic citations of your articled and accounts automatically some of the scientometric indexes. At Igor Sikorsky KPI there is a decree dated 23.03.2016 that guarantees the implementation of such services into the practice of the University lecturers and researchers.
