ResearcherID is a global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community.


With a unique identifier assigned to each author in ResearcherID, you can eliminate author misidentification in Thomson Reuters’ Web of Knowledge and view your citation metrics instantly. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world.

Ensure your ResearcherID publication list is accurate!

Articles claimed through ResearcherID will gain higher visibility within the Web of Knowledge. Each user should ensure their publication list as shown in ResearcherID is up-to-date and accurate.

Web of Knowledge is today's premier research platform for information in the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. Web of Knowledge users are able to search Web of Science for a ResearcherID number as well as view links to ResearcherID profiles in the full record.

Login to confirm and update your publication list. You may have accidentally added an incorrect publication, created a demonstration account for training purposes, or created a departmental publication or study group list. If your account remains "public" this inaccurate information will appear in Web of Science.

How to clean up your profile

  • Clean up the publication list by deleting publications from your "My Publications" list.
