For Researchers

SCU researcher profile

An SCU Researcher Profile can contain your bibliography, links to papers, your photograph, CV, a summary of your research interests and are a great way to showcase your research. Library staff will create your profile for you and populate it with your new publications as you submit them. Examples can be seen in the Author Gallery of ePublications@SCU. To request an SCU Researcher Profile fill in the online form or to find out more email

Researcher identifiers

Obtaining a researcher identifier is essential to connecting you and your publications within the scholarly research community. Researcher id's disambiguate authors with similar names. If you do not have an identifier you may not be getting credit for your work.

Contact your librarian to assist you in creating your identifier.


Open Researcher and Contributor ID, ORCID provides digital identifiers to the research community to ensure correct authorship data is available and more transparent. It is like an author DOI.

The ID system could make it possible for each researcher to have a constantly updated 'digital curriculum vitae'.

As a researcher, you want to:

  • ensure your work is discoverable & connected to you throughout your career;
  • minmize the time you spend enetering repetiitive data online; and
  • eliminate name ambiguity, distinguishing you from other researchers and ensuring proper attribution.

ResearcherId assigns a unique identifier to authors, to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification. In addition, your ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Science and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world!

Scopus automatically creates a unique identifier for you, only if you have published in a journal indexed in the Scopus database. Search for yourself in Scopus to see if you have this ID.

Integrate your Scopus Author ID with ORCID to maximise the benefits that author identifiers offer.
