Conference Canceled?

Many conferences have been canceled or deferred due to Covid, but you can still share your work through Duke! Instructions for adding a record to Scholars are below.



iThenticate is an anti-plagiarism tool that allows research documents to be uploaded for review against other published works. 

Access to iThenticate varies by role and school.  If you are unable to access iThenticate, you may still be able to gain access; please email the Office of Scientific Integrity at 

For additional guidance and information about how to use iThenticate, please visit the Duke Office of Scientific Integrity.


The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) enables you to clearly identify your publications, distinguishing your works from other people with similar names.  Duke is making it even easier to obtain an ORCID ID

  • Register or link to your ORCID ID through the OIT Account Self-Service Portal
  • Select “Register your ORCID iD” or CREATE one!
  • Authorize ORCID to share your ID with Duke! 

Your ORCID ID is now part of your Duke Directory listing and Scholars@Duke information!  At the ORCID site, you can also search for and identify the publications that are yours! Find more information on the many ways you may use ORCID, including linking it to your Scopus record, in this newsletter article.


In a Publons public-facing dashboard, track your publishing contributions, including:

• Publications
• Citations (and h-index)
• Contributed peer reviews
• Journal editing work
Publons is linked to Web of Science. Follow these instructions to clean your Web of Science author record and link it to your ORCID iD, which will help to automate updates to your records.

Reporting Guidelines for Research

The EQUATOR Network maintains a searchable list of reporting guidelines for research. These consensus documents delineate what needs to be included in articles describing health research, such as randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews, and animal studies. Many journals require authors to follow the relevant guidelines for the type of research conducted.

Over 400 reporting guidelines are available, including:

CONSORT Randomized Controlled Trials
PRISMA Systematic Reviews
CARE Case Reports
ARRIVE Animal Pre-Clinical Studies
