ISNI is the ISO certified global standard number for identifying the millions of contributors to creative works and those active in their distribution, including researchers, inventors, writers, artists, visual creators, performers, producers, publishers, aggregators, and more.
An open-source, web-based tool that helps researchers explore and share the diverse impacts of all their research products—from traditional ones like journal articles, to emerging products like blog posts, datasets, and software.
This service aims to provide a more comprehensive measure of scholarly impact by gathering data about usage of data sets, open access publications, presentations, blogs and other types of scholarly communication.
New forms of scholarly publishing
Researchers can share their work in a variety of non-traditional ways online.
Figshare allows users to upload any file format to be made visualisable in the browser so that figures, datasets, media, papers, posters, presentations and filesets can be disseminated in a way that the current scholarly publishing model does not allow.
Twitter allows sharing links and short messages with a large online community. Frequently, Twitter is used as a communication tool within research communities and as a tool to connect with potential collaborators at professional conferences and meetings.
VIVO enables the discovery of researchers across institutions. Participants in the network include institutions with local installations of VIVO or those with research discovery and profiling applications that can provide semantic web-compliant data. The information accessible through VIVO's search and browse capability will reside and be controlled locally, within institutional VIVOs or other semantic web-compliant applications.
