Your online profile is a valuable tool in showcasing your research, managing your publications list, finding potential collaborators and tracking citation counts. This session will introduce you to some of the research profile tools available to you – including Scopus, ResearcherID and Google Scholar – and look at how these tools can be linked to ORCID and the University’s research information system.

The session will cover an explanation of what the RDS is and how it offers support to researchers applying for NIHR and other peer-reviewed funding. We will give an overview of NIHR funding opportunities and identify key elements of a successful application.


By the end of the session you will:

  • Understand the benefits of having an online research profile
  • Be aware of the different research profile tools available to you
  • Be able to set up your own research profile(s)
  • Know how to link your profile(s) to ORCID / Essex RIS
