ISNI will provide a tool for disambiguating names, linking data about names used in all sectors of publishing and media industries.

repository infrastructure

Pilot National Name and Factual Authority Service 2 (Names2) is a prototype name-authority service (managed by Mimas) for UK repositories. The Names Project is working to uniquely identify individuals and institutions involved in research in the United Kingdom, making it easier to link individuals with the results of their research. The pilot Names system currently identifies over 40,000 of the UK's top researchers.

repository infrastructure

Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a system developed and managed by the international consortium (ORCID, Inc.) dedicated to resolving the name ambiguity problem, based on collaboration amongst publishers, universities, funding bodies and other stakeholders in scholarly communications. ORCID aims to solve this name ambiguity problem by creating a registry of persistent unique identifiers for individual researchers and an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID, other ID schemes, and research objects such as publications, grants, and patents.
