Researcher profiles, identifiers and social networks



  • It is important for University of Melbourne academic staff to engage with Elements, their own space in the institutional research management system. Find user guides for Elements. You can also find video demonstrations.
  • In addition all researchers should regularly engage with their own ORCID profile that will stay with them through their publishing career.
  • Add all the important additional researcher profiles. It depends where you publish most often, but most researchers starts with Elements, ORCID, Google Scholar Citations and one of either Publons of Scopus Author ID.

Add your publications - ARC RMS

Follow the instructions on page 9 of the ARC RMS Research Outputs in RMS—Instructions for adding Research Outputs to your RMS Profile guide.

  • In many cases it works well to link publications in the ARC RMS via the use of the ORCID
  • DOI-retrieval offers a handy alternative way to add publications
  • In some cases it may work better to create a BibTeX file with the relevant publications.

Some references can only be added using manual entry methods (e.g. if they are in press). Follow these instructions to enter then correctly.

Additional tips for linking publications to a grant application

  1. Add publications to your RMS profile by either
    • linking your ORCID account and importing research outputs from ORCID
    • Importing research outputs from DOI
    • Importing Research Outputs from BibTeX
    • Manually adding Research Outputs

Note: a range of methods may be required

  1. Now add Grant ID information in the Personal Profile - Research Outputs section for each relevant publication (See p.13 of the Research Outputs User Guide)
  2. Next enter your proposal to edit and add the relevant publications
  3. Cut down the outputs to 100 if you have more than 100 publications.
  4. Create a PDF document of your publications to first check how they are displayed (Harvard Author-Date style is used in the ARC RMS - see Recite Harvard) - See p. 19 of the Research Outputs User Guide for variations.
  5. Rank the top ten publications for the specific grant application - See p14 of the Research Outputs User Guide for information on searching for publications.
  6. Now select (check) the relevant outputs for the application.
