About

APID stands for Academic Profile ID. It is an innovative social network for researchers, scholars, academicians, and students. It is built to help you build your academic profile, network with peers, collaborate, and share your research results broadly. APID allows researchers, scholars, academicians, and students to showcase their contributions to the research community and broadcast ideas to others. Continually updating articles, research, and scholarly achievements, reviewing articles, and updating comments with a global perspective strengthens academic relationships.

APID facilitates immediate access to research results and offers academic networking opportunities. It organizes your academic accomplishments, experiences, and skill development.

APIDs allows researchers to update all their published articles and research all at once, update their academic achievements, review articles, and update comments from around the world.

The potential of APID in publishing journals is radically changing the publishing landscape. APID aims to establish an extensive network of peers and colleagues that can help you find relevant publications, and conferences as well as keep you informed about the latest events within your network.

Mission

APID is dedicated to disseminating scholarly research work profiles to a global audience. It is believed that wide circulation adds value to published work and inextricably mixes the right to know and the right to be known.

APID ensures that researchers get better visibility and an overarching view of a particular field and uncover trends and connections within their own.

Vision

APID aims to create a world where all researchers and scholars are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions globally.

Our Values

APID is a vital component of the global digital infrastructure that enables researchers to share information. Our approach is centered on the researchers.

Our Plan

APID plays an essential role in researchers' and members' research experiences, and we strive to build commitment and engagement with it. Our member organizations are encouraged to engage with us as they plan their own work and activities.

It is done by:

  • Increasing the value of membership
  • Increasing the Value of Research for Researchers
  • Expanding global participation
  • Maintaining Trust and Integrity

Integrity and openness

APID is committed to openness, transparency, and non-proprietary work.

Decisions are made collaboratively by staff, the board, the community, our supporters, and the researchers we serve.

Intending to provide clarity in the breadth of research contributions and the people who make them, APID strives to be a trusted component of research infrastructure. A vision of identifier-enabled research information infrastructure guides us in ensuring privacy and researcher control.  

Why Signing In is imperative?

A question may arise “Why are researchers asked to sign in to their APID account when they make a connection?” or “Why can’t users just copy and paste their other ID or resume into a system?” The reason why signing in is so imperative. The first benefit is that researchers have control over their accounts once they sign in - it helps them remain in control of their personal information. The second benefit is that, once a researcher has signed in, they can see the connections they have made to their APID more easily. Let's begin by examining what information a connection contains.

A common connection is a link between an author and a journal article. The author is identified with their APID, and the article is identified with a DOI.An author can choose to add their APID when they sign into their APID account to make the connection. Journals can be granted permission to add information to their APID records, and they can be granted permission to update their records if information regarding the publication changes. This connection can be viewed by anyone who looks at it and can see how the connection was made.Without signing in, there is no information collected. If there is no derived information, there is no way of knowing if you can trust the connection between the researcher (the ID) and her/his work (the DOI). It may contain errors, or it may not belong to the author. In addition to managing what is connected to their ID, researchers also decide how to share their information.

The researchers need to be able to trust us to protect their information and to make it easy for them to control their records. Organizations should be able to trust the IDs they use and the information they're connecting to an APID record. As a result, everyone can trust this information. The trust starts building up once a researcher signs in. It shows which connections have been made. It means that the ID itself has been passed directly from one computer to another so there are no typos or mistakes. Users can only authenticate their accounts using the correct username and password for their IDs. To be able to determine if information about an article was published by the journal that published it or if information about someone's employment came from their employer is helpful for everyone. We all have a responsibility to help make sure that the information we share is accurate, and that it is shared in a way that is useful to the community.

We at APID ensure data privacy and protection and are always eager to help our members, and the worldwide researchers who have registered for an ID, to keep control of their information. Signing In and Verification is one of the best ways to deliver that control to the researchers and global audience.
