- Create an ORCID account and understand how the ORCID ID can help distinguish individuals by allowing their publications to be easily identified.
- Calculate their H-index.
- Create a link to a PubMed search strategy that produces a list of their publications.
- Use MyNCBI to create a bibliography and search alerts to their publications.
Target Audience: This activity is intended for faculty and faculty trainees.
