The University of Hong Kong Chooses ResearcherID By Thomson Reuters to Standardize Research Identifiers
Date:12/21/2009

HONG KONG and PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Hong Kong (HKU) has selected ResearcherID by Thomson Reuters to reduce author ambiguity and enhance the robustness of its institutional repository, the HKU Scholars Hub, which provides open access support to the university's scholarly content. HKU, Hong Kong's oldest university, is the first institution worldwide to implement ResearcherID on this scale with more than 900 profiles uploaded for the faculties of dentistry, medicine and engineering.

ResearcherID (researcherid.com) is a global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community of authors who are each assigned a unique identifier that eliminates author misidentification and enables instant viewing of his/her citation metrics.

HKU worked with Thomson Reuters to integrate ResearcherID features seamlessly with its institutional repository and workflow in this project. The researcher, department, faculty and institution will benefit from updated citation counts, profiles and publication data as ResearcherID provides index data from Web of Science®, the largest and most comprehensive citation database available.

Said Mr. David Palmer, systems librarian and manager of HKU Scholars Hub, HKU, "With over 20,000 students and 1,400 faculty members, HKU requires a robust and equally dynamic repository. When we saw how easily a researcher could solve author misidentification while simultaneously adding relevant citation metrics and collaboration networks to his/her personal profile, we immediately thought of the great benefits ResearcherID could bring our repository if implemented on an institutional scale. The fact that our romanized Chinese names face increased chance of name ambiguity only made the matter more pressing."

"For research to be relevant, its results must be reported and discussed widely. I see the Hub as pivotal in our efforts to maximize FDHKU research and engage the community with our research," said Professor L.Samaranabayake, Dean of Dentistry and Chair Professor of Oral Microbiology, Faculty of Dentistry, HKU.

Said Mr. Mark Garlinghouse, senior vice president at Thomson Reuters, "As the leading global provider of intelligent information to academic and research communities, we have always worked closely with them to support their workflow and higher education needs more intuitively. ResearcherID represents our continuing effort to simplify institutions' workflow and enhance their institutional repository interface with value-added features that can help them to measure research output and peer benchmarking, and attract more international collaboration and research funding."
