How-to link other author identifiers and profiles to your ORCID Record.
Building your academic profile online can help demonstrate your authority and area of expertise, as well as, identify research interests and find potential collaborators. Creating and managing your own profile gives you control over the information available about you and ensures other researchers are finding correct and complete information about your research and career.
There are several different profile platforms available with slightly different focuses:
• Researcher Communities such as Academia.edu, ResearchGate
• Reference managment tools with social function such as Mendeley
• Search engines with author profiles such as Google Scholar, Scopus, and ResearcherID
