Assessing Research Impact: Scholar/Researcher Profiles

This guide will provide a basic overview of tools you can use to understand research impact, and tools you can use to manage your impact.

Scholar/Researcher Profiles

By using one or more of the scholar/researcher profile systems below you can maintain a centralized and/or public page of your publications, accolades, funding and more. Some profile systems calculate your citations and author metrics (such as h-index, i10-index, etc.) and provide a standardized researcher number that may be searched across a number of databases and research platforms. Faculty who intend to apply for promotion or tenure may benefit from building one or more profiles early in their career.
