During the research process, the information of individual
researchers and organizations is registered into various data systems
(HR systems, funders's systems, project management systems, publishers,
research information systems, publication registers and archives,
international publication archives, patent databases and partner
customership systems). Various scientific societies and communities also
handle information about researchers and organizations.

ORCID researcher iD
The international ORCID identifier will provide you with a permanent
and unique digital identifier. It is a series of numbers that will
distinguish you from other researchers. There are currently 2.9 million
ORCID identifiers in use across the globe.
Thirteen Finnish research organisations and CSC – IT Center for
Science have joined the national ORCID consortium whose first membership
term begun on 1 June 2016. The Ministry of Education and Culture has
commissioned CSC to act as Consortium Leader.
ORCID researcher iD
- enables identifying researchers across organisations
- can also be linked to other types of researcher IDs. When this
feature is activated in the ORCID service, information about an author’s
publications will be automatically transferred from reference databases
(Web of Science, Scopus) to their ORCID profile.
- enables searching publications in Web of Science and Scopus
Publisher based researcher identifiers and ISNI
extract publications by an author from the database in question.
Unfortunately, these identifiers only work in one database, so the
researcher needs multiple identifiers.
- ResearcherID is integrated with Web of Science, making it is easy
to add publications to your own researcher account. You can create the
identifier yourself in the Web of Science -database or at www.researcherid.com.
- You need to link your new Web of Science articles to your researcher account by choosing "Save to ResearcherID".
- Your ORCID account can be associated with your ResearcherID and data can be exchanged between these two.
- The Scopus author identifier distinguishes you from other authors
by assigning you a unique number and then grouping all your documents
- However, if your name has appeared in various ways during your
authoring career or you have changed affiliations at any point, your
publications may be spread over a number of different author profiles.
- The easiest way to manage your profile is through the Scopus to ORCID wizard: http://orcid.scopusfeedback.com/.

ISNI, based on the ISO 27729 standard, is a system for unambiguously
identifying people or organizations owning scientific or creative works
Google Scholar author profile
Google Scholar profile
- public or private
- a list of researchers´s own publications
- statistics of citations received by the publications and tracking of citations
- H-index of all the publications and five-year h-index
- i10-index, i.e. the number of publications with over 10 citations
- when searching by author in Google Scholar the public profile will be at the top of the search results and displayed as a link
