There are different initiatives to prevent the publication of an author's publications incorrectly attributed to another investigator with the same name, or a similar name, for the databases indexed by the publications.
To avoid these incidents, we recommend that:
- You registered at ORCID and get your identifier
- Periodically review the information about your authorship that shows the ResearcherID of Web of Science and the Author Scopus identifier
- Sign your posts always with the same signature and institutional affiliation
- You create a profile of a researcher at Google Scholar
