HOW-TO: External Profile IDs
There are three fields in the ‘External Profile Information’ section of the CMT registration page for entering users’ external scholar IDs: Google Scholar ID, Semantic Scholar ID, and DBLP ID.
Conference chairs may use the profiles to help facilitate paper matching and reviewer suggestions.
GOOGLE SCHOLAR ID
Clicking the Google Scholar ID link will take you to the WIKI page - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Google_Scholar_id which contains instructions to find one’s Google Scholar ID.
SEMANTIC SCHOLAR ID
Clicking the Semantic Scholar Id link will take you to the Wikidata page - https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property_talk:P4012 which contains instructions to find one’s Semantic Scholar ID. The Id is a multi-digit number.
Finding a DBLP ID is more involved. We provide the detailed steps below.
CMT-Required DBLP ID Formats
The DBLP ID that users enter into the CMT user profile page needs to be in one of the following formats.
Finding your DBLP ID on dblp.org
- Go to the DBLP page (https://dblp.org/)
- Type your name in the search field
The results show:
- From the Exact matches and Likely matches, click the link that belongs to you. It will take you to your DBLP home page. Once there, click on the ‘share’ icon, and copy your persistent URL.
Persistent URLs can be in one of the following two forms.
Extract DBLP ID from Persistent URL
Remove 'https://dblp.org/pid/' from the persistent URL.
This will leave either the numeric or name string with a single “/” (forward slash) like the following.
If there are more than one entry for your name, there will be a digit(s) after the string.
Your DBLP ID would look like the following.
There is no '-' between ...'Doe' and '2'
Entering DBLP ID in CMT
Once you have your DBLP ID, enter it in the 'DBLP Id' field.
Any formatting other than described above is unacceptable.
For example, entering the entire persistent URL will be invalid.
