The University of Hong Kong Chooses ResearcherID By Thomson Reuters to Standardize Research Identifiers

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.

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.
