Creating and Using an ORCID iD
Posted On: Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 18:22 by Karen Barton

As of March 1, an author search for "John Smith" yields 818 results in Scopus. The first 30 authors in this search have over 7,300 articles combined. ORCID (pronounced ORKID or ORK ID) is a great solution for differentiating authors and connecting them to all of their own research.  As a globally supported non-profit organization, it maintains a registry of unique and persistent identifiers for authors that may be used across databases and other places where research is found.

All you need to do is register and it only takes 30 seconds! You can then link your ID to other identifiers such as those found in Scopus, Duke Directory and Scholars@Duke, and LinkedIn. Keep in mind…

Posted On: Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 14:37 by Brandi Tuttle

The h-index is an author-level metric, originally proposed by Jorge E. Hirsch in 2005, to simultaneously measure productivity (number of papers published) and citation impact (number of times a paper is cited). If you’re interested, you can read Hirsch’s original proposal for the h-index here.

For a particular scholar, their h-index is the number of h published papers where each paper has been cited at least h times. For example, if Dr. Jane Doe has an h-index of 12, then she has published 12 papers that have each been cited at least 12 times.  The h-index attempts to measure both the productivity and the apparent scientific impact of…
