Find and Analyze Your Publications

Find and Analyze Publications
Are you interested in finding and analyzing your research publications but are unsure of where to begin? The NIH Library has the resources and the staff to help you. 

Find your publications
Get started by using the author search functions in Web of Science and Scopus, both of which can help you find your publications in just a few clicks. Since each citation database has different content coverage and may return different results (e.g., a higher h-index), using the two tools together can help you find and evaluate your publications more efficiently and accurately. Try it out now—while on the NIH network, search each database's author search page: 

  • Web of Science (select the “Author Search” tab and search by name, ResearcherID, or ORCID )
  • Scopus (search by name, affiliation, or ORCID)

Get help with your analyses
Now that you have your list of publications, you might want to know what you can do with that information. Are you interested in measuring productivity, or discovering research collaborations? Perhaps you want to better understand the impact of your own research or identify related research topics from those publications. 

The NIH Library provides a range of services to help you including: expert advice on designing analyses and selecting metrics; training on the use of publication analysis databases and tools; and analytical services customized to your specific needs. To get started, visit the NIH Library’s Bibliometrics Service page or contact Ya-Ling Lu, ya-ling.lu@nih.gov
