Research impact and visibility: Researcher visibility

Increase your visibility

Has your name changed or has your work been attached to a wrong person with the same name?
Author identifiers resolve problems concerning name changes, researcher with the same name or the different spelling of the name.

Do you write for the general public and would like to bring out the social impact of your work?
Publication repositories (e.g. TUNICRIS) brings together the publication information. In addition to publications, remember also save other outputs like tasks of an expert, interviews, merits etc.

Have you been thinking about your researcher visibility? Do search engines and those who search for experts find you?
By networking with using visibility services and informing about your research, you can also influence the attention and visibility you receive on social media.

Author Identifier Tools

According to the Open Science Guidelines at the Tampere higher education community (pdf), each researcher should acquire an international ORCID researcher identifier and use it in all scientific activities. The international ORCID identifier will provide you with a permanent and unique digital identifier.

ORCID profile

  • distinguishes you and ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
  • reliably and easily connects you with your contributions and affiliations
  • reduces form-filling (enter data once, re-use it often)
  • improves recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs
  • is interoperable (works with many institutions, funders, and publishers)
  • is persistent (enduring)

To learn more and to create and maintain your iD, go to ORCID page   ORCID-logo.

Scopus Author ID

  • The Scopus author identifier distinguishes you from other authors by assigning you a unique number and then grouping all your documents together.
  • However, if your name has appeared in various ways during your authoring career or you have changed affiliations at any point, your publications may be spread over a number of different author profiles.
  • Scopus creates automatically author profiles based on publications found in Scopus. The easiest way to manage your profile is through the Scopus to ORCID wizard:
  • Further details: Manage my Author Profile


  • ResearcherID is integrated with Web of Science, and can be used in Publons environment. You can create the identifier yourself in the Web of Science -database or at and link it to Publons.
  • Your ORCID account can be associated with your ResearcherID and data can be exchanged between these two. You have to grant Publons permission to export/import information between services.

Researchers can create a Google account and collect all their articles found in Google Scholar to "My Citations page".

Google Scholar profile

  • public or private
  • a list of researchers´s own publications
  • statistics of citations received by the publications and tracking of citations
  • H-index of all the publications and five-year h-index
  • i10-index, i.e. the number of publications with over 10 citations
  • when searching by author in Google Scholar the public profile will be at the top of the search results and displayed as a link

ISNI - International Standard Name Identifier

ISNI, based on the ISO 27729 standard, is a system for unambiguously identifying people or organizations owning scientific or creative works or opuses.

How you can increase your visibility?

  • Create a researcher identifier, for example ORCID iD.
  • Use a consistent spelling of your author name in all publications.
  • Use the standardised institutional affiliation (=Tampere University) in your publications.
  • The publication should have a permanent identifier (PID). The identifier identifies the publication and ensures that the publication is discoverable even if its physical location online changes. Permanent identifiers for publications are e.g. URN and DOI. 
  • Consider using Open Access channels (including self-archiving).
  • Check your own publication information in international databases and contact the service provider if you notice errors in your name or contact information.
  • Discuss your research and share information about your publications in academic social networking sites.
  • Join social networks for researchers, e.g., ResearchGate, LinkedIn.
  • Utilize social bookmarking with e.g. Mendeley, Zotero.
  • Consider informing your research e.g. via Twitter.

You can follow the visibility of your research in social media with Altmetric Explorer.

Publication repositories

The researchers of Tampere University are responsible for saving their publication information to institutional repository.

Researchers of Tampere University will save publication information to TUNICRIS. Publication data collected in system is used for internal and external reporting (e.g. OKM and Statistics Finland), calculation of funding (OKM and University), evaluation and monitoring of research and information on research.

All publication data saved in TUNICRIS is sent automatically to the national VIRTA publication information service. All publication data sent to VIRTA is displayed in and  JUULI portal.

More information: TUNICRIS-guide.


Publications made by TAMK staff are reported to Justus service. Publication infromation can be browsed through JUULI portal. is a service offered by the Ministry of Education and Culture that collects and shares information on research conducted in Finland. The service improves the location of information and experts on research and increases the visibility and societal impact of Finnish research.

You have a possibility to inform about your research work with the help of University communication services. The automatically updates information found in the systems of universities, universities of applied sciences, research institutes, university hospitals, and research funders. Each organization decides which news are included in the

Visibility services for researcher

Researchers can share their results and publications in social media / social networking sites and get feedback and visibility for their work.

When saving research articles into social media services, copyright issues and the publishers' policies concerning these services must be taken into account. Read more on self-archiving and social media.
