UT Libraries provides several resources and expertise for scholarly publication, including awareness of new tools and initiatives that help UT Austin faculty, students, and staff with their research needs.
Open access policy for UT Libraries' staff (last updated Oct 31, 2016)
UT Libraries participate in a number of open access publishing initiatives. Some of these initiatives include direct benefits to authors.
Other open access memberships provide UT Austin support for more sustainable publishing models.
These tools are not white lists or black lists. They are designed to provide some information about the transparency and quality of the publication services of a given journal. They should be used in conjunction with disciplinary knowledge, consultation with colleagues, and the author’s own professional judgment. -- C. Lyon, Scholarly Communications Librarian, UT Libraries, Austin (UT Libraries Blogs, Open Access, Publishing)

From Web of Science:
ResearcherID provides a solution to the author ambiguity problem within the scholarly research community. Each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification. In addition, your ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Science and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world!

By now, every scholarly author has a Google Scholar profile to increase online visibility. It's an easy and simple means for authors to display their works and attain a set of metrics, including the h-index.
Google Scholar will automatically suggest publications for you to add to your profile. Select and add to profile; add research interests as keywords.
