IraLIS (International Registry of Authors-Links to Identify Scientists) is a standardization system of scientific authors' signatures.

IraLIS works in 5 lines:

  1. To make scientific authors aware of the importance of his signature in order to be cited correctly, and to recover easily their bibliography throughout their live careers.
  2. To write signature's standard criteria to
            a) be indexed properly in databases and
            b) be distinguished from other authors with the same or similar name.
  3. To produce a database with all the signature variants used by each author.
  4. To carry out automatic literature searches using all signature variants.
  5. To be the authority list of the E-LIS repository authors names.
