    • A registry where you can get a one-of-a-kind id and keep track of your activities.
    • APIs for authentication and system-to-system contact
  • Use it proactively to connect to your research outputs and increase discoverability. Make sure you use it whenever you share your work, for example when you submit a manuscript or publish a dataset. Put it on your personal profiles on the web and social media. This will connect you to your research across the web whatever search tool people are using.

The list of repositories are as follows:
