Author records are automatically generated when you perform an Author Search in Web of Science. These author records are groups of papers that our algorithm determines are likely to be by a single author. You can identify, curate and claim your author records by creating a profile. Learn more.
If your name is unique and there are many author records, use the filter on the left side of the page to limit to your instution or subject category.
Learn more about Web of Science's ResearchID, including how to claim your record. If you claim your record, you can correct the publications that appear under your author profile, and you can also view a metrics dashboard that contains additional information.
Scopus automatically creates an author profile when two or more articles can be linked to one profile. Scopus uses algorithmic data processing to match articles to author based on name, email, affiliation, subject area, citations and co-authors. Learn more about Scopus AuthorID, including how to claim and correct an author profile.
Author metrics, such as h-index will display in the results list, but click on the author's name to view additional information.
Author profiles only appear for those who have authored 2 or more publications that are indexed in Scopus.
By creating a Google Scholar Profile, you can showcase their academic publications; check who is citing your articles, graph citations over time; and compute several citation metrics - including H-Index and i10-Index. You can also make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name, e.g., Elizabeth Suelzer.
