  15. 15. Impact of identifiers: ORCID Case A: match (r:researcher)--(m) where not exists(r.orcid) return count(distinct(r)) Case B: match (r:researcher)--(m) where exists(r.orcid) return count(distinct(r))
  16. 16. Summary ● President Identifiers has a crucial role in enabling connections in Research Graph and enabling functionality of the Switchboard platform. ● Research Graph distributed graph currently more than ten million nodes from CERN, Dryad, ORCID, figshare, ANDS, NII Japan, and a number of other international partners. This data can be used for research in collaboration networks. ● The Research Graph is an open collaborative project.
