Digital identity

Digital identity is all the data or traces associated with the activity of a person online.

Clame your identity

Using persistent digital identifiers will distinguish you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

Optimising research

Choose open access repositories like HAL to increase the visibility of your publications and increase their chances of being found, read and cited.

Communicating and interacting

Gain recognition in your field and beyond, communicate your research to a wider audience, grow your networks by using social networking tools like twitter or facebook, or professional and academic networking like academia or Researchgate. As social networks are not open repository but independent for-profit companies that could theoretically close up shop at any time, it is advise you to link to publications host in open repository which guarantee Long-term preservation and access.

Distinguishing between researchers with the same name is becoming increasingly difficult. The problem can be overcome by assigning researchers a researcher identifier - a unique, persistent, international ID that stays with them throughout their career and beyond.
