Identifiers-Scholarly Communications - Carnegie Mellon University


Identifiers uniquely and persistently pinpoint an entity to disambiguate it from others with the same or similar name or characteristics.  They provide a transparent way to distinguish, for example, an author, institution, funder, or intellectual property.  Integrated into important research workflows in the digital environment, identifiers support automated linkages that facilitate recognition and assessment.  Identifiers are typically a numeric or alphanumeric string.
