23 Things – Bonus 6 Researcher IDs

23 Things is aimed at researchers so this Thing was quite interesting; encouraging researchers to create a Researcher Identifier – this helps distinguish researchers with similar names, increase your visibility (and the chance of your work being read/cited).

Despite not being a Researcher, I do have a publication so I decided to set up an ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID) – others are available, but this seemed like the simplest one.  So, here is my ORCID page I can see this would be extremely useful to Researchers and it makes me feel a teensy bit academic!
