It aims to provide the user with knowledge that allows them to manage their electronic files (PDF format), in addition to helping to standardize automatically generated citations and references.

Research profiles

It aims to provide the researcher with the knowledge necessary to create their profile, or identifier, so that it allows total disambiguation between author names. Produces citation reports according to the created authority profile and decodes the typology of documents.

ORCid - Author identifier that guarantees interoperability with other identifiers/profiles such as Scopus Author ID and Researcher ID.

Scopus Author ID - Identifier assigned by Scopus automatically. This identifier, despite being assigned automatically, can and should be corrected by the author. The author may request changes to the name used, affiliation and associated articles.

Researcher ID - Profile of a researcher associated with Thomson Reuters and which guarantees disambiguation in scientific production indexed in the Web of Science. This profile, once created, must be updated manually by the author.

Google Scholar Profile - To create a profile you need to create and log in to a Google account, log into Google Scholar and choose My Citations. This profile must be associated with an affiliation and can be public or private. Of all the profiles, it is the one that gives the most visibility but does not have any integration with the researcher profiles for academic use (ORCiD, Scopus Author ID and ResearcherID)

The number of users varies, depending on the location, library or other room. The minimum is one person. Always by appointment
