Other networks and tools

There are numerous other tools and services that aim to increase researcher visibility and networking. In the previous sections, the most common ones where introduced. Here are some other services shortly explained, just as examples.

Web of Science Researcher Profiles (formerly Publons). You can track your publications, citation metrics, peer reviews, and journal editing work. Publications are instantly imported from Web of Science, ORCID and bibliographic reference management tools (e.g. Mendeley). Citation metrics are also automatically imported from the Web of Science Core Collection. Publons CV summarises your scholarly impact as an author, editor and peer reviewer.

Faculty Opinions (formerly Faculty of 1000 and F1000Prime). You can find recommended articles in life sciences and medicine, and see an easily digestible summary of why an article has been recommended.

Figshare is not a networking service but it is a repository where users can make all their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner.
