​Profiling & Identity

The Author Identification provides a unique number for every author and helps find and recognize a specific author and to avoid confusion with other similarly named authors.

Due to the Unique Author Identifier, your information and publications will remain associated with you, whether you change institution or your name.
This Unique Author Identifier will help you to avoid confusion with other similarly named authors and to solve name ambiguity problem in scholarly communication.

The most commonly used Author Identifiers are: Researcher ID (Thomson Reuters), Scopus Author Identifier (Scopus) and Online Researcher and Contributor ID.


Researcher ID is created to assign each researcher with a unique identifier, which can help to manage and share professional information: to set up a profile and link this unique profile to own publications, including those not indexed in Web of Science.

​Scopus Author Identifier distinguishes between similar names by assigning each author in Scopus a unique number and grouping together all of the documents written by that author.

ORCID, or Online Researcher and Contributor ID allows researchers to interlink with Researcher ID, Scopus and even LinkedIn profiles.​
