Publons / Web of Science ResearcherID
The Web of Science ResearcherID has been migrated to Publons now. You may register a Publons profile at https://publons.com/account/register/ if you do not have one. If you already have your ResearchID registered before, you can simply login with your ResearcherID account on Publons.
Please note that a Publons profile may not be necessary for everyone. You are recommended to maintain one if Web of Science is a more recognized database in your research field.
By integrating your Publons and ORCID profile, you can add publications to ORCID from Publons, and vice versa. Publons allow mutual information transfer unlike Scopus. You can follow the steps stated below to establish links between your Publons profile / ResearcherID and ORCID profile.
Login to your Publons profile / ResearcherID on Publons.
Click on “Account” on the left menu bar.
Under the Connected accounts page, click on “Connect” next to ORCiD.
You will be directed to the login page for your ORCID profile. Login your ORCID iD account, and then click on “Authorize access”.
Once the connection has been set up, you can follow the below steps to start moving a copy of your publications between the two systems:
Method 1: Synchronizing data from ORCID to Publons / ResearcherID profile
Login to your Publons profile page. Click on “Publication” on the left menu list and select “Sync my publications from ORCID”.
Method 2: Synchronizing data from Publons / ResearcherID to ORCID profile
Click on “Permissions” on the left menu. You may choose to tick the box for auto-updating your ResearcherID profile if there is an update on your ORCID profile. Press on “Grant publons permissions to update your ORCID works”.
Click on “Authorize access”.
You may also choose to tick the box for auto-updating your ORCID profile with updates on your ResearcherID profile. Lastly, press on the button “Save changes”.
