Researcher Identifiers, Profiles and Social Networks: Publons (Web of Science)

What is Publons?

A Web of Science Publons account allows you to create a profile where others can see your publications. Your Web of Science ResearcherID integrates into the Publons platform and allows you to manage your publications, track citation counts, calculate your h-index and manage your Web of Science record. You can add publications that are indexed by Web of Science or import them from another source.  

Why register for a Publons account?

If you register for Publons and don’t already have a Web of Science ResearcherID one will be assigned to you. A ResearcherID is a unique number that remains the same, regardless of whether your name or institution changes, and can: 

  • Import your publications from Web of Science, ORCID, or your reference manager (Endnote or Mendeley), 

  • Create an online profile showcasing your work as an author, peer reviewer and editor, 

  • Track the citation metrics for your publications indexed in Web of Science Core Collection, and 

  • Make it easier for others to find your body of work and identify you as a potential collaborator.
