There are more than 27 million researchers worldwide working at public and private institutions and universities (Karakawa & Takeda, 2012). Often, a lack of standardization of researchers' names (common names, changing how they sign articles over the course of a career, etc.) and the names of their institutions (U. Europea, Universidad Europea, Univ. Europea, etc.) can make it difficult to find or identify them, and reduces their visibility.

There are different systems for identifying researchers which can link each author to their publications, identify collaborators and favor the process of scientific discovery.
