Grow your profile

There are several key steps to growing your profile as a researcher, and your liaison librarian can help you every step of the way.

  • ORCiD

    Get all of your work attributed to you by signing up for ORCiD, a permanent (and unique) identification number that you can use when publishing, on research grant applications and in numerous other places. ORCiD is recommended by the University and the sign up process takes less than 5 minutes. If you already have an ORCiD, make sure that it is linked to your University ID .


  • Aurora and Researcher Profiles

    Aurora lets you keep track of all of your publications and other research outputs in one place. It is integrated with the University's Researcher Profiles, and lets you add in additional information about your qualifications and research-related activities. You can also use Aurora to export publication lists for grant applications, calculate your h-index and lots more.

    Your liaison librarian can provide advice and assistance with using Aurora effectively.

    Go to Aurora

    Once you've claimed all of your publications and set up all of your information, login and fine tune your public University of Adelaide profile in Researcher Profiles.


  • Google Scholar citations

    Create a Google Scholar Citations profile, then claim your publications, view your citation metrics, and view other profiles. Your profile will appear in Google Scholar search results if you make your it public. 

    Go to Google Scholar 

  • Web of Science ResearcherID

    Make yourself discoverable by creating a ResearcherID account to manage your Web of Science publications and peer review activity. It's free to join and is viewable by anyone. Use of ResearcherID on Publons solves author identity issues and includes citation metrics and collaboration.

    Go to Publons

  • Scopus author profile

    Scopus creates a unique author identifier for you within Scopus. It includes citation and author metrics and collaboration networks, similar to ResearcherID. It is free to view but more information is available via the Library subscription.

    Go to Scopus

  • Other researcher profiles

    There are many other researcher profile sites. Some also enable research collaboration and article uploads where copyright permits.  Join the profile(s) used by your discipline to increase visibility. Some popular sites are:
