ResearcherID is a freely available resource for the global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community. After registering, you are assigned an individual ID number that stays with you over the course of your career, regardless of name changes or change in institution affiliation.
ResearcherID allows you to create an online Profile for showcasing your publication history. It is designed to associate you with your scholarly work, thus assuring an accurate record of output and attribution. It also provides a gateway for colleagues to quickly locate your published work and to identify you as a potential collaborator.
