When thinking about publishing your research, author identity is very important.
It is best to stick with one form of name. Once you have published, the University recommends using the author identifier system ORCID to bring all your publications under one name.
Beyond establishing a consistent author ID, it is good practice to use a social media tool to establish a researcher profile. This way, you can control your online presence and use it to your advantage (that is, to promote your research).
There are many different tools to choose from, consider which tool is popular within your field of research when deciding the option that is best for you.
