A researcher profile, for example Griffith Experts, helps showcase your research. You can add your publications and other outputs, affiliations, research areas, and connect with profiles on other services, such as LinkedIn or Google Scholar. Researcher identifiers, such as ORCiD, ResearcherID and Scopus Author Identifier, are unique, permanent identifiers that connect your name to your research outputs.

Use researcher profiles and identifiers to:

  • create a persistent author identifier
  • keep your name and affiliations updated
  • promote your research and teaching activities
  • comply with funding or publishing requirements
  • increase the opportunity to make new connections and research collaborations
  • improve the chance of your outputs being cited
  • assist with metrics calculations, such as citation counts and h-indexes
  • help make research outputs discoverable and impactful.
Connect ORcid to Scopus, ResearcherID and Elements profiles. Add Google Scholar to Griffith Experts profile.
Profiles can be linked to auto-update, providing a complete picture of your research.
