The universal means of ensuring operative access to data within the Registry are:

  • QR- code generated for every personal account of the Registry figurant;
  • Identification (registration) numbers (INF) for: 1) every figurant of the Registry in its system (Identification numbers of scientists (INS)); 2) every publication of the figurant of the Registry uploaded into its system (Identification numbers of publications (INP)).

QR-codes are intended for wide distribution in the public environment and ensuring the process of operative presentation of information about the figurant and his or her scientific creativity, as well as informational support of his or her public and professional activities.

QR-code (QR - Quick Response) is two-dimensional barcode carrying information that can be easily decoded with the camera on the mobile phone or any other communication device.

QR-code generated within the framework of the Socrates–Notion includes a link to the personal account of the Registry figurant on the Socrates–Notion website. Therefore any person concerned can have easy access to the personal account of the Registry figurant and look through the actual information about him or her just by scanning the code.

Identification (registration) number of every Registry figurant ensures statistical and functional identification of the corresponding data in the Registry system.

Identification numbers of scientists (INS) are alphanumerical codes of the following format: 1) Capital words of the scientist's surname and name in English; 2) Capital word of the scientist's country of residence in English; 3) Year, month, day - date of registration in the Registry; 4) Order number of the scientist in the Registry (considering the actual chronology of registration).

Identification numbers of publications (INP) are alphanumerical codes of the following format: 1) INS; 2) Hyphen; 3) Order number of the publication in the Registry (considering the actual chronology of uploading).

In order to ensure effective use of universal means of access to information within the framework of the Registry the corresponding QR-code and the INF are allocated on the majority of types of Socrates–Notion decorations.

The Registry figurant can freely place the QR-code and the INF connected with his personal Socrates–Notion page:

  1. in all his or her publications in official editions (as an image related to publication);
  2. on personal websites and visiting cards;
  3. on personal pages (accounts) in social networks, interactive professional communities and in email;
  4. in professional CVs, biographies and advertising information;
  5. on any information carriers;
  6. on clothes and other things.

In order to ensure maximum fullness and efficiency of functioning of universal means of access to information within the Registry figurants the Socrates–Notion are recommended to refresh information in their personal Registry accounts timely and operatively.

Being placed on any suitable sources of information visual QR-codes as universal means of ensuring operative access to information allow persons concerned to receive extended information about the Registry figurant and his or her scientific activity.
