A scholarly identifier is a tool to help organize and link your full body of academic work. Researchers can easily establish a digital identifier in both ORCID , Google Scholar, or Research Identifier and then begin attributing their work to these accounts. This process creates a digital body of work to pool your citations, publications and research interests.
