About ResearcherID Labs

ResearcherID invites you to explore the ResearcherID Labs environment. New features have been developed to provide additional data on each member's collaborators and on those papers citing a researcher’s works. We’re eager to get your feedback on the features (close Help and click the "Provide Feedback" link below the ResearcherID Labs menu).

ResearcherID Badge

The ResearcherID badge tool lets visitors to your Web page or blog access information about members of ResearcherID.com. To use the badge, follow the instructions on the Badge page. We currently offer 2 styles of the badge graphic -- you can choose which one you wish to use (they function identically).

When you rollover the badge with your mouse pointer, information about the researcher is displayed in a popup. The popup contains the researcher's name, ResearcherID, up to 3 of his/her most recent publications (from the researcher's ResearcherID publication list), and a link to that researcher's ResearcherID profile page. The data presented on badge roll-over is dependent on the researcher's privacy settings (researchers can choose to make their publication list or entire profile private). As such, not all badge popups will contain the same elements.

Inserting the Badge code in a blog

For this example, we will use Blogger, which is a free blogging service from Google.

Log into your Blogger account and compose a new message for your blog. Select the edit HTML tab, and paste the code you copied from Step 3 on the Badge page. It is important to make sure you have the HTML tab selected first. You can paste the code by right-clicking and selecting paste from the drop-down menu.

 

Collaboration Network

The Collaboration Network graphs/map displays information from the papers the researcher has written. The data is gathered by extracting data values from the Web of Science records in the field that you selected from the field menu (Authors, Categories, Countries/Territories, Institutions, Map). The system produces a report showing the top values in ranked order (for graphs), or the top locations on the map.

A few notes about the data:

Note: The researcher's own information is included -- so he/she will be among the highest ranked authors.

Citing Articles Network

The Citing Articles Network graphs/map displays information from the papers that cited the publications the researcher has written. Using Web of Science, we find the citing articles for publications on the researcher's publication list (this is limited to publications that were added from Web of Science).

The data is gathered by extracting data values from those citing articles in the field that you selected from the field menu (Authors, Categories, Countries/Territories, Institutions, Map, Years). The system produces a report showing the top values in ranked order (for graphs), or the top locations on the map.
