The Researcher Profiles section of this guide provides recommendations on how to make your research easily discoverable to the widest possible audience.
To build an impactful researcher profile, ensure you complete these three steps.
Risks & Considerations:
When you publish information on your researcher profile, make sure you are legally allowed to disclose this information to others. For any research that has been formally published, check the journal publisher's policy and conditions before uploading it. Many publishers allow researchers free use of the ‘author’s original manuscript’ or ‘author’s accepted manuscript’, but it is important to check this in any publishing agreement you sign.
The Monash Health Research Repository (MHRR) provides access to publications by Monash Health employees, promoting hospital-based researchers. The MHRR collects a wide range of research outputs, including journal articles, books and book chapters, conference abstracts and posters, theses and dissertations. It is publicly accessible for a global audience.
MHRR Researcher Profiles contain:
Fill out this online form to submit your profile. Creating a profile will help you connect with other researchers and potential collaborators.
Note: You may already have a skeleton profile on the MHRR. Search for your surname here to check. If your profile already exists, you were identified as a Monash Health researcher during the MHRR’s implementation. We still encourage you to fill out the form above to add more information to your profile.

ORCID iD is a 16-digit unique digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers. Once created, your ORCID doesn't change -- regardless of your employer, funding organisation, or field of research -- and remains fully under your control.
An ORCID iD is often required when using research data management platforms and institutional repositories, while applying for grants (it is encouraged by the NHMRC and ARC), or on submission of a manuscript. It gives you the ability to import your existing publications -- indexed in platforms such as Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar -- and link them together in the one place.
Visit the ORCID website to register for your free ORCID identifier.
The following video describes how ORCID iDs work and why they are important:
Please note: ResearcherID and Scopus Author IDs are ORCID compliant.
A Google Scholar Profile displays your research while also helping you to keep track of who is citing your publications and your own citation metrics. Google Scholar will also suggest publications it believes you may have authored, giving you the option to easily add them to your profile.
The following overview video provides more information.

Promoting your research online requires you to "put yourself out there" and may make you vulnerable to identify theft, phishing, scams or hacking. Here are some tips that will help make your journey smoother and safer.
