Common researcher names, name changes, cultural differences in name order, and inconsistent use of middle initials, can make it difficult to accurately calculate measures of personal impact. Numeric codes can help identify individual researchers.
A scholarly identifier is a tool to help organize and link your full body of academic work. Researchers can easily establish a digital identifier in ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID), Google Scholar, or Researcher ID (Thomson Reuters) to begin attributing their work to these accounts. This process creates a digital body of work to pool your citations, publications and research interests.
By registering for a unique identifier, you can potentially connect a diverse array of your scholarly output, including journal articles, datasets, patents, and online comments.
