What's in a Name? (Researcher Discoverability)


Learn some of the history behind ORCiD (a "DOI" for authors) and why it matters: "...The scenarios for confusion and ambiguity abound: multiple authors who happen to share the same name; those who’ve changed or combined their last names after marriage; those whose names contain accents or other special characters that might confound a literature search; or those simply unlucky enough to have their names misspelled by a journal or other party in the course of publication..."

And if you don't have an ORCiD yet or would like to know more, contact Barbara Wetzel (375.3289) or Tomiann Parker (375.3298).
