HRD PhD Research Guide

This guide provides resources, information, and tools to guide you through the UT Tyler HRD PhD program.

Researcher ID & Web Resources

ORCID  (Open Researcher and Contributer ID) is a free and open registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. Register here for your ORCID identifier! Provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. Supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
Use your ORCID identifier on your Webpage, when you submit publications, apply for grants, and in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work.
Link to your other identifiers, such as Scopus Author ID, or ReseacherID or LinkedIn.

Note: Before ORCID was developed, some database providers developed approaches to author disambiguation. ResearcherID (developed by Thomas Reuters and used in Web of Science) and Scopus Author ID (developed by Elsevier and used in Scopus) are two examples of these efforts. 

Whereas ORCID is a platform-agnostic identifier, ResearcherID and Scopus Author ID are connected to proprietary, subscription-based systems.


Scopus Author ID


Scopus is a multidisciplinary database of peer-reviewed journal articles, books, conference publications, and other literature. Authors with publications indexed in Scopus are automatically assigned a Scopus Author ID. Users can use the lookup tool to locate an author's profile, which includes the identifier, references, citations of work, h-index, and subject areas.


Example of a Scopus Author ID profile; Scopus Author ID appears on the upper left corner along with name and affiliation. The profile includes a graphical representation of citation and the author's h-index.


Like ResearcherID, data associated with Scopus can be exchanged with ORCID.




Publish or Perish

If you are working in an area that is not well covered by the Scopus or Clarivate blibliometric tools, you can use the free Publish or Perish software to analyze your citations using the data from your Google Scholar profile. 

Jane: Journal Author Name Estimator

If you have written a paper, but you're not sure to which journal you should submit it, or maybe you want to find relevant articles to cite in your paper, or are you an editor, or do you need to find reviewers for a particular paper use Jane.

Enter the title and/or abstract of the paper in the box, and click on 'Find journals', 'Find authors' or 'Find Articles'. Jane will then compare your document to millions of documents in PubMed to find the best matching journals, authors or articles.
