Colleagues in the Faculty of Science have started receiving their invitations.
All research faculty will receive their own personal invitation by the end of the academic year.

See when will you receive yours here!

Connecting your ORCID iD with HKBU is...
Simple and Fast!
Don't take our word for it...

The very first beneficiary of our system was Prof. Patrick Lau

(Department of Physical Education)
Here is what he had to say :
I have been researching in exercise science and children's physical health since I joined HKBU in 2001. I have enjoyed the research process except the overwhelming e-forms which requested me to fill in my research productivity. Right now, with the wonderful service provided by the Research Visibility Project, HKBU Library, I not only save a lot of time in doing that, but also they can help enhance the visibility and possibly the citation of my research work. Personally, I will recommend all my academic colleagues to do so and it only takes less than 10 minutes.

Why Research Assessment


In a guest post on the ORCID blog, Todd Carpenter (Executive Director of the US National Information Standards Organization) explains why the scholarly world needs persistent identifiers like ORCID to assess research impact.

                            He writes that researchers...

should be interested in making impact metrics and the systems that underlie them as robust as possible to ensure all the credit due them is properly attributed and counted
How can researchers do their part?
    Carpenter suggests that you should :
  • Register with ORCID
  • Use your ORCID iD on all the content you produce
  • Insist your publishers and repositories collect & publish IDs on all your scholarly output
& Permission to share

Soon after receiving your ORCID invitation you will receive another e-mail from our team asking for your permission to create a ResearcherID and for permission to share your non-sensitive personal data with the organisations behind the important Web of Science and Scopus citation databases.

Again, it will just take a couple of minutes. You will not just be increasing your own research visibility and impact but that of the whole University.
