Measuring your Research Impact

Getting Started

Update your Profile on the Maynooth University Research Information System

Sign up for a ORCID identifier. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognised. Check out the ORCID knowledge base.

Create a Google Scholar Citations Profile:  Google scholar citations allows authors to track citations to their scholarly works and to calculate numerous citation metrics based on Google Scholar citation data.  By setting up a profile, you will be able to disambiguate yourself from authors with the same or similar names and make yourself more findable on Google.

Create a Research Profile using  Publons (Researcher ID) on the Web of Science Database available via the Libraries A-Z of Databases. Register with Web of Science to begin this process.

Check your Author ID on the Scopus database to make sure your details are correct. This identity is automatically generated if you have publications on Scopus.
