Profiles and IDs
Researcher profiles ensure that you are discoverable and have a platform to present your outputs, unique skills and expertise.
Author IDs solve the problem of author name ambiguity that may occur due to a name change during a career, differences in publisher formatting of names, or researchers with the same or similar names. To get credit for all of your research outputs they must be correctly attributed to you using and author ID.
Depending on the tool, your ID or profile will either be:
- automatically created for you
- need to be created by you
- need to be claimed by you
You are responsible for ensuring that the publication and author data is correct and up to date.
