ORCID, an international and independent identifier
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor iD) is a global non-profit organisation that provides a unique identifier for researchers to link their outputs with their research identity and make it easier to share verified, validated information. It is the most effective step you can take to ensure your work is findable and attributed to you! It is also work with many systems and actors involved in the research system. For example, it can be requested by a publisher when submitting an article, for a funding application or to respond to a call, or when entering an evaluation file.
How to optimize your ID?
Citation profiles will ensure all of your publications covered by these databases are correctly attributed to you, and give you an overview of your citation performance.
You can link your Scopus Author ID and ResearcherID to ORCID to make sure they’re both up to date!
There are numerous social media platforms you can use to promote your work. Choose carefully the one(s) that suits you best and don't forget to separate your professional social media use from your personal.
Alternative metrics measure and monitor the reach and impact of research through online interactions beyond the traditional methods of citation and journal impact factors. Their score is not linked to a platform or to the popularity of a researcher but gathers data from different tools (social media networks, blogs, online media, video platforms, library catalogues, bibliograhic databases...) :
The signature of a scientific publication is key to national and international visibility and recognition of the authors as well as their research units and institutions. Since 2016, Sciences Po has adopted a signature charter for defining simple rules:
The two most common cases at Sciences Po are:
1. People affiliated with a Sciences Po research unit (CHSP, Law School, medialab, OFCE)
"Name Surname", "Sciences Po", "Name of the research unit (Acronym)", "Paris", "France".
2. People affiliated with a research unit associated with CNRS (CERI, CEE, CSO, Department of Economics, CRIS, CEVIPOF, CDSP)
"Name Surname", "Sciences Po", "Name of the research unit (Acronym)", "CNRS", "Paris", "France".
