Khalifa University of Science and Technology has acquired an institutional ORCiD account to facilitate tracking faculty publications and generating various reports. ORCiD is a non-profit organization founded to assist researchers in tracking their publications, research awards, and other research activity by providing a single ID that operates across many platforms such as Scopus or Web of Science. In order for this effort to be successful, all faculty are requested to register for an ORCiD and connect it with Khalifa University. The goal of this exercise is to broaden the visibility of your work as a researcher, and of the University as a whole.
To assist in this endeavor, the Library is offering workshops on ORCiD which will cover the following topics:
- Why ORCiD?
- Register for an ORCiD number.
- How to connect your ORCiD with Khalifa University
- How to import your publications from various sources such as SCOPUS, Web of Science, Google Scholar, etc.
On the day of the Workshop, Mr. Nikesh Narayanan (System Librarian, Khalifa University) will be available from 10 AM to 5 PM in Habshan (SAN) library to provide personal help in setting up ORCiD and connect it with Khalifa University.
