Research activity profile
The researcher chooses a type of recognized signature which clearly identifies him/her and distinguishes him/her from other researchers.
Standardization of author's name
- ORCID: Open Research and Contributor ID
An international and interdisciplinary organization. This provides researchers with a register to obtain a unique and permanent identifier that distinguishes them from any others. It enables attribution of academic works.

- Iralis: International Registry for authors: Links to Identify Scientists
Standardized signature system for scientific authors. Helps authors to compile bibliographies
- Creating an entry
- Raising awareness of the importance of having a unique signature
- Creating a simple signature format that can be integrated in the sources of information of the English-speaking world.
- ResearcherID (Thomson Reuters)
A tool allowing researchers to create a personal identifier (ID) that they can embed in any location: personal web pages, CVs, etc. The ID links to a personal work-space that automatically updates information on citations, labels, and keys generated by the user, and key information that can be shared with the public or kept personal.
- Google Scholar Citations
This makes it possible to compile the academic production of a researcher and displays a personal page with information about the number of citations. It presents 3 indicators: total no. of citations of the works, researcher's h-index, and the i10 index.
Registration is required to use it.
- Normalized CV (CVN)
A project by the Spanish Science and Technology Foundation (FECYT) and the Ministry of Science and Innovation for the rational implementation of information technologies in the management of research activity, ensuring that researchers do not have to repeatedly add their curriculum to forms/databases for calls.
CVN is an accepted CV standard in calls as part of the national R&D&I plan.
The Spanish Science and Technology Foundation (FECYT) is working with the leading managing bodies so that the CVN will become the accepted standard for virtually all R&D&I activities at a state and/or autonomous community level that require a CV to be provided.
- Recommendations for correctly identifying academic publications. FECYT (Spanish Science and Technology Foundation)
This establish common standards when signing academic works with the aims of helping with preparing bibliographies. For standardizing authors and institutions and recommendations for electronic addresses and websites.
- Co-author Index
A tool from the EC3 Research Group: Evaluation of Science and Scientific Communication, making it possible to find out the co-authorship habits and practices of Spanish researchers in the different fields and disciplines in which academic knowledge is organized.
It can be consulted by journal or discipline for a specified year. The data are also offered at a global level for the whole period analyzed and their development over time.
