The next generation of Web of Science Researcher Profiles

From today, we’re pleased to announce that Web of Science™ Researcher Profiles is improved with new features for tracking your publications, citation metrics, peer reviews and journal editing, all in one place – making it the one-stop destination for managing your academic profile and demonstrating your expertise.

We have created the next generation of the Web of Science Researcher Profiles by incorporating the best features of Publons and ResearcherID. When Publons integrated with the Web of Science and ResearcherID in 2019, we received many requests from users asking us to improve the way the tools work together. Community feedback has guided our development since day one.

With new Web of Science Researcher Profiles, you can:​

  • Receive credit for all of your scholarly contributions ​
    Track your publications, citation metrics, peer reviews and journal editing work in one place to demonstrate your expertise throughout your career.​
  • Be noticed by funders and potential collaborators​
    Showcase your work in a trusted database used by over 15 million researchers at more than 9,000 institutions worldwide.​
  • Keep track of when your work is cited ​
    You’ll receive automatic citation alerts for the publications in your profile that are indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection.
  • See the full picture of your citation impact in context​
    Web of Science Researcher Profiles help you gain a deeper understanding of the citation impact of your work with a visualization (Web of Science Author Impact Beamplot) that aligns with best practices for research evaluation.
  • Get back to what matters most
    Save time with a profile that syncs with ORCID and exports your publications and verified peer review history with a few clicks, so that you can focus on your research.​
  • Stand out from the crowd
    With badges for your earned designations including Highly Cited Researchers™ and Web of Science Academy™ Mentor or Graduate. You can also hide your old name to become discoverable by your chosen name.
