Preparing for Activity Insight: Creating and Curating a Scholarly Profile

This guide is designed for those who would like to create an ORCID, ResearcherID, or Google Scholar profile, especially those who need to track scholarly output in preparation for the Activity Insight implementation.

When updating your annual report through Activity Insight, you will be able to input your publications manually, through third-party import options, or by uploading a BibTeX file, which can be created in a variety of ways. ORCID is directly integrated into Activity Insight, along with Crossref, PubMed, and Web of Science, allowing for easier publication import. You can also leverage scholarly output tracked via Google Scholar, or through citation managers like Zotero and Mendeley, by exporting the commonly accepted BibTeX file. Within this LibGuide we have included information about how to set up Google Scholar, ORCID, and ResearcherID accounts. We have also included information about how to export a BibTeX file from both of these, as well as a selection of other citation managers.

There are pros and cons to each of these approaches, and some may work better for particular disciplines. Please see our forthcoming Publication Import Guide for further details.
