Digital Object Identifiers (DOI), are becoming the standard for providing persistent links to data files. The forethcoming SMU Dataverse will issue DOIs to data deposited in the repository. To get a DOI for your data housed in other repositories, go to DataCite.
Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) is a registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers. You can link your ID with your professional profile, such as education, employment, grants, publications, etc. Use your ID to share your information with other platforms to make sure you get recognition for all your contributions. You can avoid duplicate data entry and maintenance across multiple sites by maintaining your ORCID record and linking it to existing profile accounts (Google Scholar, Academia.edu, LinkedIn etc).
