Search PubMed, ORCiD, or ImpactStory and display publication information on your blog or website. Include altmetrics from ImpactStory.

This is a WordPress plugin to automatically display a publication profile on a website.

Results can be pulled from PubMed, ORCiD, or ImpactStory, and will be automatically updated daily.

One profile can be created per blog user.


If your site has multiple users, each user can create their own publications list on the dashboard. The shortcode is then changed into:

[publications name=login_name]

To retrieve results from PubMed: Because PubMed does not use unique identifiers for a authors, you must come up with a way to search for yourself that distinguishes you from other people in the database.

For example:

  • "mcclintock"

  • "mcclintock B"

  • "mcclintock B AND Cold Spring Harbor[affiliation]"

To retrieve results from ORCiD: First, go to orcid.org and create your publication profile (very easy to do). On the left side of your profile, you should see a 16 digit number. Copy this number down to access your profile from ImpactPubs.

To retrieve results from ImpactStory: go to http://impactstory.org and create a profile. Your name in URL format (eg http://www.impactstory.org/users/YourName/) is entered as the identifier.

NOTE: This Plugin works by making a remote call to the National Library of Medicine's E-Utilities. (http://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/eutils/), to ORCiD (http://feed.labs.orcid-eu.org/) and to ImpactStory (http://impactstory.org/embed/).

The creator(s) of the Plugin assume no responsibility for the accuracy or cleanliness of the data retrieved from these remote services. Use at your own risk.
