Hi Henda

Thx for bring this up.
See: http://wiki.lib.sun.ac.za/index.php/SUNScholar/Researcher_ID

The major stumbling block to creating researcher profiles and therefore
using them for research evaluation by your selves in the lack of accurate
researcher identification.
How many "John Smith"'s do research and to whom does the research paper

DSpace is making plans to incorporate ORCID into their metadata schema.
See: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/ORCID+Integration

When it does, then every researcher in South Africa should have an ORCID
identifier which should then be used in all research communication.

For now we rely on the integrity of the metadata only. Hopefully the
research office and other interested parties will assist us in getting
author id's correct and mandating the adoption of one or more public
researcher id's.
