Research support: Research impact

Services and resources provided by the Library to help at all stages of the research cycle.

ResearcherID and Scopus Author Identifier


If Web of Science contains many of your publications, create a ResearcherID to manage your name and make yourself discoverable.

It's free to join and is viewable by anyone.

Solve author identity issues while simultaneously including dynamic citation metrics and collaboration networks in your personal profile.

Scopus author ID

Scopus creates a unique author identifier for use within Scopus. It includes citation and author metrics and collaboration networks, similar to ResearcherID.

Track citations

Library research support staff can help you to track citations of your work and promote the results of your research.

Contact your research or branch librarian for assistance.

Measuring Your Impact

The MyRI (Measuring your Research Impact) online tutorial comprises 3 modules. It is designed to be worked through module by module but if you just want to calculate your h-index or how many times your publications have been cited, you can select these options from the side-bar menu.

Module 1: Introduction to Bibliometrics

Module 2: Track your Research Impact

Module 3: Journal Ranking and Analysis
