and how to create them
Initially, create a ResearcherID, search for publications in the Web of Science, and match them with the identifier (i.e., to create your own publication profile on the Web of Science).
We recommend that you create this identifier first. Having done so, you will be automatically offered the option to create an ORCID identifier. The two may be interconnected easily.
Further instructions are available on the Researcher ID website and the manual you can find on the Clarivate website.
Instructions for Publons registration and syncing with ORCID you can find in this short manual.
Scopus Author ID
The Scopus Author ID is created by indexing the first result in the Scopus database. Authors are not able to create one themselves.
In Scopus, you need to search for your Scopus Author ID (created automatically when your first publication is entered in Scopus) and modify your Scopus profile (match your publications in the database with your identifier).
Instructions are available on the Scopus website.
International identifier ORCID ID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID)
You need to create your ORCID profile and interconnect it with your ResearcherID and Scopus Author ID profiles (thereby filling the profile up with publications listed on the Web of Science and Scopus).
Instructions are available on the ORCID website.
The profile may be filled with records kept in OBD – see the instructions (only in czech language this time).
When generating UAIs remember to fill your profile with the list of your publications. For instructions see the respective UAI.
Set your profiles open to the public and remember to update them regularly, otherwise they serve no purpose.
