I’d recommend that you join
where you can share your research and that of others as well as following scientists and projects.
It is also advisable to set up profiles on the following websites. This is much easier to set up if you’re new to academia. If you have a lot of publications then it may take a little longer, although some aspects can be automatically imported. Once set up, maintaining these profiles will be much easier:
provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.
- This will enable you to link your publications within Google Scholar.
- Your publications, citation metrics, peer reviews and journal editing work, in one place. The main benefit of publons is keeping track of your peer reviews and receiving credit for them. This can also be linked into your ORCiD.
