Welcome to the Researcher Identifiers and Profiles guide where you can find out more about establishing your identity and getting credit for your work.
Researchers may have the same or similar names causing an author ambiguity problem in the scholarly research community.
To disambiguate names and identify individuals uniquely, several organisations have implemented varying code schemas to meet the needs of their systems.
If your identifiers are not established and up-to-date, you may not be getting credit for your work.
