Have your academic publications been attributed to an author other than yourself? Do you face the challenge of distinguishing your research activities from those with similar names?
The NCAR Library recommends that all authors who are concerned about proper reference citation consider using an author identifier.
There are numerous competing alternatives, but the NCAR Library recommends the ORCID system. ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and output.
If you have questions or concerns about setting up an ORCID profile, please contact the NCAR Library at firstname.lastname@example.org or at x8505.
