Don't lose credit for your research!

How to actively manage your research identities from the major citation services.
When publishing academic work you will probably find that different publishers use different versions of your name (initials, full name etc.) and it becomes hard to link all those names together. This video shows how you can create research IDs to link your publications to all your names and see who is citing you.

If you have any questions about research IDs please email
