Author IDs

Surfing through the IMB website, I noticed that they have linked staff publications to the NCBI via a simple PubMed search.  Rather misleading – obviously if I’m John Smith and you look for me at Pubmed using “Smith J[AU]”, you’ll get rather a lot of hits (2032 as of today), most of which are not mine.

We’ve discussed it at Nodal before – it’s time for unique author IDs.
