  • Register for an ORCID ID and link this to your Researcher ID so that your work is not assigned to anyone with a similar   name by the Scopus author ID algorithm
  • Create a Researcher ID for Web of Science( Web of Knowledge)
  • Always use the same institutional name variant, Dundalk Institute of Technology
