 Researcher Profiles, Identifiers and Social Networks guide



Researcher profiles are important because they help you to



  • link all of your publications together 
  • group any name variations under which you have published 
  • group institutions where you have worked. 
  • differentiate between authors with similar names
  • improve researcher impact
  • assist with metrics such as citation counts and h-indexes
