Author Identifiers

Your Brand

In order to accurately present and measure your impact, you need to get credit for all of your research. Increasing globalization, non-standard naming conventions, changing institutions—there are many reasons why your identity might be confused with another researcher’s. Author identifiers are meant to help you disambiguate your name and create a common authority link between all of your research.
