ORCID – author identifiers

We have all found publications by researchers with the same names or initials.  So, is it the person we want?  What to do?

ORCID ID numbers are showing up on CV’s.

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher.  Through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submissions, it supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

Distinguish yourself in 3 easy steps. Entries allow significant profile and bio information.

Maybe you know about Thomson Reuters’ ResearcherID?  Here’s how the attribution identifiers, ORCID and ResearcherID, integrate.

Research Reporting Guidelines

Posted on: |

“Guidelines inform the underlying structure, or skeleton, of a sturdy research report that reviewers can respect and users can lean on. Authors provide the flesh on the bones, by conveying in clear and accessible language the human importance and emotional weight of a research problem, the real-life context and contingencies that shaped the procedures, and the insights that underpinned clinically-informed interpretation. Quality of research is an appraisal informed by researchers’ and readers’ appreciation of the research context. Clear documentation of research methods is essential to that determination.” 

Margaret H. Kearney, p. 86-87 (2014) in Hoping for a TREND toward PRISMA: The Variety and Value of Research Reporting Guidelines. Research in Nursing and Health, 37, 85-87. HSL subscribes to this journal.

I recommend her concise article. Kearney outlines excellent guidelines that are valuable for providing clarity concerning scientific research rigor.
