Author Identifier - Scopus (Elsevier)
The Scopus Author Identifier, by Elsevier, assigns a unique number to each author in the Scopus database and groups together all their publications. It accounts for variant versions of names by matching affiliations, addresses, subject areas, co-authors and dates of publication. It automatically calculates citation counts and the h-index. More information about Using your Scopus Author Identifier is available from the Scopus tutorials.
ResearcherID - Web of Science (Thomson Reuters)
ResearcherID, by Thomson Reuters, assigns a specific ID number to each registered researcher in order to reduce identity issues. Researchers can add the details of their publications to their individual profile and these are made available to anyone searching the database. Citation metrics such as number of times cited and h-index are automatically calculated using details from Web of Science.
