Registering with ORCID and ResearchID will help to increase visibility for your scholarly creative activities and ensure your name is properly associated with your scholarly work. One of the most common problems for faculty visibility is name ambiguity and the challenge of distinguishing your research with that of others. You need to be able to easily attach your identity to your research.
Google Scholar is a freely available tool that indexes scholarly publications.
