Are you utilizing Author Profiles online? We have a few different services that we maintain, mainly ORCID and Google Scholar. If you’re new to these services, ORCID,

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

and Google Scholar,

  • Search all scholarly literature from one convenient place
  • Explore related works, citations, authors, and publications
  • Locate the complete document through your library or on the web
  • Keep up with recent developments in any area of research
  • Check who’s citing your publications, create a public author profile

Rusty recently shared about the importance of creating author profiles in this post. We also recently co-hosted a faculty workshop at our institution with presenters from Montana State University on the same topic. Dr. Kenning Arlitsch (Dean of the Library) and Dr. Justin Shanks (Interim Department Head, Digital Library Initiatives)  shared, via Skype for Business, about the importance of maintaining your scholarly presence online using author profiles. Their talk focused on ORCID and Google Scholar.

As a result, we thought it was time to add links to our ORCID profile pages and Google Scholar profiles to our website. You can add links to your profiles anywhere on a website that will accept some embedded code. I chose to add ours to the sidebar of our blog. This quick video capture below (no sound) shows you where I added the code to the sidebar.

If you haven’t created profiles with ORCID and Google Scholar, we highly recommend it!
