If you are undertaking research, you will need to set up persistent digital identifiers that uniquely distinguish you as a researcher and connect you to your research activity. Use ORCID ID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and other researcher identifiers to:

  • establish your identity as a researcher
  • get credit for your research activity
  • improve your publication workflow
  • draw in accurate data to your UQ eSpace and other profiles, including UQ Researchers and your Individual Activity Profile (IAP).

7. Other profiles and platforms

There are a range of other public profiles and collaborative platforms that may be of value to you as a researcher.

If you have one of the following profiles, or create one in the future, make sure that you add a link to it in the Website section of your ORCID profile:

  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Mendeley
  • Social Science Research Network (SSRN)
  • BioRxiv
  • Loop

You must still adhere to copyright licencing conditions when using these sites.
