Use Author Identifier to Get Credit for Your Work

Author identifiers disambiguate authors with the same or similar name. Because they persist even if you change your name, switch fields, or relocate, having an author identifier ensures that your work is discovered and attributed to you. An identifier will simplify updating your CV or preparing an annual report because it streamlines the process of compiling a bibliography of your work. Searchable author identifier registries contain researcher profiles and lists of citations.
