Scientific services – a scientist's trademark

Facebook Twitter Telegram E-mail

In the modern world of science and scientific publications, it is important for scientists to identify themselves as professionals, actively communicate with other researchers and declare themselves and their achievements. To implement this, they seek help from scientific services, platforms that contribute to raising the status and authority of research articles. They facilitate the exchange of information and create an atmosphere for the development of scientific thought and its results.

It is important for modern scientists to sign up with various popular services and share their developments. What are the most relevant platforms a scientist can use?

Scopus Preview

This platform was created by Elsevier to gather information about the activities of authors, their publications, citation.

One can also use Scopus Preview without indexing, but a more in-depth analysis requires access. The system creates a profile immediately after indexing the first scientific article, but the author will be able to log in only with a subscription. The scientist can manage to enter their account without a subscription only after the publication of the second article.

What does registration in this service provide?

  • Information regarding the scientific and publishing activities of the author.
  • Search for articles, data from colleagues, universities, funding, journal.
  • Data storage and more.

Web of Science ResearcherID – Publons

The Web of Science ResearcherID service has updated its location and is now on the Publons platform, which helps scientists track their publications, citation rates, and reviews. All author's achievements are instantly imported in this service from Web of Science, ORCID, EndNote, and Mendeley.
