Combining an up to date ORCID with InCites, can produce a comprehensive citation report for yourself very quickly. If you do not have an ORCID that connects all of your publications, you can import search results from Web of Science into InCites for analyses. View the details and guides for each option below.
Option 1 - InCites Researcher Report
You have an ORCID or Researcher ID that is up-to-date.
Option 2 - Analyse publications dataset from Web of Science
You do not have an ORCID or Researcher ID, or they are not up-to-date.
An up to date ORCID or Researcher ID associated with all of your publications in Web of Science.
You want a quick overview of your work and metrics.
Note your ORCID or Publons ResearcherID.
Log in to InCites (Uses the same log in as Web of Science, Publons and Endnote Online).
Go to Report and then Researcher Report.
A Researcher Report, based on publication and citation data in Web of Science, has three parts:
Most Cited Documents
Guide to analysing by research area
Guide to analysing all of my publications
If you do not have an ORCID linked to Web of Science or Researcher ID, or if you are not confident that they are to date.
If you do not have an identifier capturing all of your work in Web of Science it is still possible to create a report in InCites as long as you have work in Web of Science.
Go to Web of Science and search for your publications. See the Search for an authors publications on the Web of Science page for more information.
Once you have all of your publications, either as a single search results list or as a marked list from the top of the results list, go to the Export dropdown menu and select InCites.
You will need to sign in using your InCites credentials (these are the same as those for Web of Science, Publons or EndNote Online).
You can then name the file and it will be exported as a dataset to InCites.
If it is not already selected it is recommended that you select Include ESI documents.
By default, a publication date of the previous five years will be selected e.g. 2015-2019 so you may want to change to a broader timeframe.
Alternatively, to view your publications using a researcher identifier go to Person Name or ID, select your ID Type and enter your identifier.
Research Areas will list all of the research areas (using the Web of Science categories) that your output is in listing:
If you want to benchmark your work against other publications in the same research areas use Category Normalised Citation Impact (CNCI). This is a measure that compares the number of citations a publication or group of publication have got in comparison to others of the same type, in the same research area, that have been published in the same year.
There are are number of different indicator metrics that can be used to measure the impact of your output in the academic sphere
In order to see metrics such as CNCI across all of your works you will need to add a baseline.
To see the metrics, such as CNCI, for each individual publication simply click on the number in the Web of Science Documents column.
If you want to see all of your documents go to Baselines and add a Baseline for All Items.
