This guide provides information and additional resources for getting started with the most common approaches to measuring and communication the impact and extent of the reach of your published work.
Author Identification: author IDs help uniquely identify you and your publications
Citation Metrics: tools to measure citations within "traditional" publishing (books, articles, published papers)
Journal Impact: explore the impact factor for journals to which you are considering submitting work for publication
Altmetrics: learn about the impact of your work beyond traditional citation metrics
ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier) is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.
