ORCID@HKUL: Publons / Web of Science Researcher ID

Publons / Web of Science Researcher ID

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.
