Researcher identification

Ensuring research activities are linked to the right researcher supports good research practice.

Researchers, research institutions, publishers and funding bodies routinely face the problem of accurately linking research publications, data and other research activities to the right researcher.

The use of unique persistent identifiers allows research work to be correctly attributed to its creator, funding sources and also better connect to data systems, supporting best research practice.

Royal Society Te Apārangi is the lead agency of the New Zealand ORCID Consortium to encourage the adoption and use of ORCID iD as the digital identifier for New Zealand’s research system.
