ORCID ORCID is an open-access tool that allows researchers to collect information about themselves in one place, and then share that information with granting agencies, sponsored research offices, libraries and professional societues.
ResearcherId is a tool from Thompson Reuters that uses their Web of Science search engine. It is more limited in journal selection than Scopus, and for fields like particle physics, cosmology and nuclear physics, the depth of search may be limited. ResearcherID provides citation information on publications including an h-index, but the h-index only counts citations from published articles, and not from preprints and many conference proceedings. To build a complete publication profile may require utilizing other tools to populate the data base.
SCOPUS Scopus is a tracking tool from the publisher Elsevier. It only tracks items published in journals, and may miss some lessor-known journals as well as some conference proceedings.
Research gate tracks the research of scientists and searches out publications. It also provides a forum to post and answer questions about research. While it does provide citation information like an h-index, it may be incomplete if not all of an author's papers have been identified.
InSpire InSpires is the de facto publication tracker for nuclear and particle physics. It was developed at SLAC, but has now evolved into a much larger effort. It is able to track preprints submitted to the online archives, arXiv.org, so the resulting h-index and other citation information is probably the most accurate for nucelar and particle phsyicists.
Mendeley Mendeley is a public information sharing tool from Elsevier.
Google Scholar is a tool developed by Google to track academic works. It is coupled to the Google Search engine and literally finds everything. Google Scholar reports an h index, as well as other citation indicies. However, due to its very extensive searching, these indices tend to be larger than the same index from other sources.
