  3. Discuss how getting an unique ID might help Fairfield faculty to build collaborations and generate citation metrics
  4. Allow time for signing up of for IDs, if people choose to.

Faculty who might be particularly interested include those in Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Environment, Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science, Nursing and Physics, as well as anyone whose work is indexed in Web of Science.
