2. ResearcherID

What is ResearcherID? ResearcherID provides a solution to the author ambiguity problem within the scholarly research community. Each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification. In addition, your ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Knowledge and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world!

3. ORCiD 

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized. Find out more.

4. EarthCube main site

EarthCube is a collaboration between the U.S. National Science Foundation and Earth, atmosphere, ocean, computer, information, and social scientists, educators, data managers, and more. EarthCube aims to transform the conduct of research through the development of community-guided cyberinfrastructure to integrate information and data across the geosciences. 

5. EarthCube Member connections

There’s a new, cool graphical software utility to connect geoscientists! With all the interdisciplinary competitions going on now at NSF, you can use this to find appropriate potential collaborators to make proposals as competitive as possible.  EarthCube (EC) can flourish as a community with your participation. NSF asks that we ALL get on board here!

(There are only something like 5 identified geomorphologists. This is not acceptable! Participation shows community support and encourages more funding opportunities.)
