Profiling and Identity

The Researcher Profile provides a unique identification number for each author.
The identification number helps finding and recognizing specific authors, avoiding the confusion caused by similar names etc.

Thanks to the unique Author Identifier, your information and publications will remain associated with you, even if you move to another
institution or change your name. 
The unique Author Identifier also helps to avoid mismatches when it comes to different name variations or spelling errors.

Scopus Author ID

The Scopus Author Identifier assigns a unique number to authors in Scopus.

The Scopus author identifier helps in finding documents written by a specific author. To determine which author names should have the same identification, Scopus Author Identifier uses an algorithm that matches the authors’ names based on their affiliation, address, subject area, source title, dates of publication, citations, and co-authors.

A Scopus Author ID is automatically generated on the first time one of your publications is indexed in Scopus, and it can also be integrated with ORCID.
* ORCID can be used across all platforms, but your Scopus Author ID is specific to Scopus.

Scopus will sometimes generate multiple IDs for the same author, due to name spelling variations.
To solve this and to optimize the citation metrics, request to merge your author IDs.
For more information, please read the following page: Scopus Author Identifier on Elsevier’s official website.

ORCID ID

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a digital identifier that provides a unique number for each author.

ORCID provides a consistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers (including researchers who have the same name as yours).
Through integration in key research workflows such as manuscripts and grant submissions, your ORCID ID automatically makes the connection between your profile and your professional activities, ensuring that your work gets recognized.

We invite you to create your institutional ORCID account that will be associated with the Technion: ORCID integration at the Technion 

  1. Sign in or register with your personal details
  2. Choose a privacy level: “public” or “trusted parties”
  3. AUTHORIZE to create your Technion ORCID

With your permission, ORCID will import articles from Scopus, Web of Science, Europe PubMed Central and CrossRef, if their citations have a unique identifier (e.g., DOI, ISBN). You can also import your publications from databases (Web of Science, Scopus, etc.) on your own:

  1. Login to ORCID and click the Add Work button in the Works Section.
  2. Click the Search & Link button in the Works Section of your profile.
  3. Follow the link to the resource from which you want to import citations.

For any support, please contact your Faculty Library. Medical Faculty members who work
in hospitals affiliated with the Technion may receive assistance from the hospital librarians.

Publons / Researcher ID

Researcher ID profiles moved to Publons on April 15, 2019.
The Researcher ID assigns each researcher with a unique identifier that helps to manage and share professional information. The Researcher ID works across Web of Science collections, and covers all disciplines. It is also integrated with ORCID.

* ORCID can be used across all platforms, but Researcher ID is specific to Thomson Reuters.

For more information, please read the following page: ResearcherID-Publons FAQs

Create a Publons profile, or sign in with your Thomson Reuters username and password (this can be the username for your ResearcherID, Web of Science or Endnote). Next, load your documents from either Web of Science or Endnote to associate them with your new identification number.
