Publons is the new environment where you can benefit from the improved Web of Science ResearcherID. Publons is a free service by Clarivate Analytics that makes it easy for researchers to track their publications, citation metrics, peer reviews, and journal editing work in one place.
Researcher Identification and Research Profiles
ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. The ORCID community includes individual researchers, publishers (e.g. Nature Publishing Group and Elsevier), universities and research institutions (e.g. MIT and CERN) and societies (e.g. APS and OSA).
ORCID Registry is available free of charge to individuals, who may obtain an ORCID identifier. In ORCID Registry, the researcher may maintain his/her publication list and transfer publication information automatically from ACRIS.
- ORCID allows you to distinguish yourself from other researchers and helps you to get credit from your own work. It keeps your information even if your name or organization changes.
- ORCID is interoperable with many research systems (e.g. ACRIS, Scopus, Crossref) and information can be transferred between the systems.
- Some research publishers (e.g. PLOS ONE, Science) and research funders require researchers to have ORCID.
- Finnish Research Information Hub uses ORCID to link researchers to their research outputs.
- ORCID will, over time, reduce the need to enter the same personal and publication data into different systems.
More information about ORCID on Researcheridentifier.fi website
Use ORCID id
- alongside the names of authors of scientific publications and other research output
- when peer reviewing
- to link various reference database IDs (ResearcherID, Scopus Author ID)
- on your own website or blog
- in your email signature, CV, and other services that handle information pertaining to your research
Connecting your ORCID with ACRIS
Instructions on how you can connect your ORCID with ACRISCheck your publication list in ORCID. If you have imported publications from more that one source, it's possible that you have duplicates. If this happens, you can remove duplicates manually.
Google Scholar is the most significant freely available scientific information search service. You can also create your own profile and link your publications to correct profile. Unlike Publons ResearcherID and ORCID, Google Scholar does not provide a unique researcher identifier which could be used when making searches.
Scopus Author ID
The Scopus Author ID is an identifier that is used in the Scopus citation database. Scopus Author ID allows you to track your publications indexed in Scopus.

The principle of openness is the key principle of science and research. At Aalto University, the most visible forms of open science are open access publications, open research data and metadata, and combining openness and commercialisation.
