Researcher ID allows faculty to create an easy access point to their published works. ResearcherID also lets researchers build a searchable database of their body of work. It can assist in clearing up misidentification problems of authors who have published under different variations of their name because the researcher builds the website themselves.
To create a Researcher ID account, go to researcherid.com and click the "how to register" link for an invitation to join.
The database can also be searched by author, institution, or keyword. The search results are shown in two tabs. The first tab shows the list of citations from the author with a link to the full-text of the work.

The second tab shows the citation metrics which includes the total number of articles in the publication list, number of articles cited, sum of the times sited, the average of citations per article and the h-index.
This tool can be a good way for faculty to make their publications and research more accessible to the scholarly community. You must choose to make the information public when setting up your account.
If you're in any of the Web of Science databases, you can also find the link to My Researcher ID from within the database.
