Methodology: This research as an applied and exploratory study compares authority control in Google Scholar and Research Gate Databases by using library, experimental, and comparative methods and analyzes its impact on researchers' scientific productivity. A total of 100 out of 2652 external and internal researchers in the field of information and science who had at least one article indexed in Web of Science and Scopus databases as well as one or more H-indexes between the ages of 2010 to 2018, using purposive sampling, were considered as the sample of this study.
Findings: Google Scholar and Search Gate databases are not found except for a few key items such as small name, big name, organizational affiliation, researcher email, specific tools that can be helpful in obtaining of researcher’s identity.
Conclustion: Significant errors and failures in the authentication of researchers at both Google Scholar and Research Gate sites indicate a lack of documentation and organizing tools to solve challenges and issues that cause serious unforeseen damage and errors in the author's documentation control.
