Web of Science ResearcherID
A Web of Science ResearcherID is a unique identifier that connects you to your publications across the Web of Science ecosystem (i.e.,Web of Science, Publons, and InCites) and provides the global research community with an invaluable index to author information.
Having a Web of Science ResearcherID helps:
Assigning a unique ResearcherID to every researcher with at least one publication on the Web of Science standardizes and clarifies author names and citations, and makes your information search straightforward and accessible.
We fully integrated ResearcherID across Web of Science collections, Publons profiles, and InCites. It can also link to your ORCID to ensure you’re properly credited for your work across the web.
Publons is a free resource for the global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community. After registering with Publons, you get a Web of Science ResearcherID number. This number doesn't change, even if you change your name or institution affiliation.
You can create an online profile to show your publication history. Publons draws a connection between you and your work, and assures an accurate record of output and attribution. It also helps your colleagues quickly find your published work and identify you as a potential collaborator.
Publons is a profile used by researchers in the scholarly research community to claim, manage, and showcase their work. This includes:
Publons directly links to the Web of Science. This allows researchers to claim and manage their Web of Science publication history, and display their history next to their peer review and journal editing history.
Web of Science Group products (Web of Science, Publons, InCites, EndNote) use a unique identifier — a Web of Science ResearcherID — to match and disambiguate researchers across products. You can use a Web of Science ResearcherID to search for researchers across these products.

The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID, Inc.) is a non-profit organization that aims to solve the author/contributor name ambiguity problem in scholarly communication by creating a central registry of unique identifiers. These identifiers can be used within various systems you may interact with in your professional research workflow, including manuscript submission.
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
