A list of largely overlapping profile pages

Estonian Research Portal (ETIS) - inevitable for scientists in Estonia.

Mendeley - neat tool to organize your pdf collection. Becomes dead slow when there are many (thousands) pdfs.

Google Scholar - has some useful features, like automatically tracking citations and suggesting literature to read based on the profile. Unfortunately, the Googlebot is still rather stupid: the number of citations to my thesis is "slightly" too high, because it is also counting (some) later PhD thesis published in Dissertationes Biologicae Universitatis Tartuensis (all previous theses published there get simply listed at the end of every thesis).

ResearchGate - facebook for scientists.

ORCID - can turn out to be useful if journals and institutions adopted these unique identifiers. Profile data (publications etc.) could be updated and shared automatically with this system, eliminating the need to update manually the profile pages listed above.


And something else, less redundant
