ResearcherID is designed to let researchers avoid author misidentification for the publications they have authored. Each researcher is assigned a unique ID when they register for a ResearcherID. Researchers can add publications (even not indexed by Web of Science Core Collection) to their ResearcherID profiles. Citation metrics such as number of times cited and h-index are displayed on the ResearcherID platform for publications that are indexed in Web of Science.
Set your "publication list" open to public. Your ResearcherID will be displayed at the Web of Science Core Collection. This allows other scholars who find one of your papers to further discover all of your publications at Web of Science.
Keep only one ResearcherID account. The aim of author IDs is to reduce name ambiguity and avoid author misidentification, there is no point to have more than one ID, you are advised to search the ResearcherID registry before creating a new account.
Update your ResearcherID profile with your new publications from time to time.
