Managing your Academic Identity

What are Author Identifiers & Profiles?

Author (or researcher) profiles are unique identifiers that allow researchers to bring together and standardize all the information about their academic and professional careers, including:

  • The institutions they have worked for
  • The documents / works they have published
  • The projects they have contributed to
  • Funding they have receive

These profiles are linked with numeric or alphanumeric codes that serve to uniquely identify authors, and are created across different platforms and specific databases.
