About LiveDNA
Scholars and Researchers are known mainly for their research and peer-reviewed journal article(s) but in Asia, many of them are not well recognized because of variations in how their name appears in the published literature. Several names are shared with many other people, some names are transliterated or misspelled, and some names change over a person’s career. These variations, or ambiguities, make it very difficult to correctly identify a person’s body of work. Moreover, there are many contributions a person makes, such as peer review, patents, datasets, mentoring, that are virtually impossible to link back to the contributor and therefore impossible to cite. In addition to this, Asian researchers are found reluctant to adopt and utilize the international online platforms to manage their profiles due to the lack of technological awareness.

LiveDNA became the first in Asia to realize the significance to link and cite people and their scholarly contributions. It is a not for profit, open and community oriented organization that not only assigns a unique digital identifier to researchers and professionals to protect their intellectual, academic and professional identity but also facilitates them to keep their records completely managed and updated with the help of its highly skilled and knowledgeable team and technical staff. LiveDNA is committed to open data, worldwide participation and respect to the privacy of the individual scholar or researcher.

Privacy and Security
A core principle of LiveDNA is that you control the privacy settings of your own Record data through various opt-in and opt-out features, regardless of whether you create your own LiveDNA Record, or a LiveDNA Record is created on your behalf by your employer. To that end, LiveDNA allows you the right to control how your information is published on and shared via Directory by providing you three settings: Public, Limited or Private
Information marked as "Public" can be viewed by anyone who comes to the liveDNA website. Data marked as public will also be included in the LiveDNA Annual Report of Public Data .
Information marked as "Private" can only be seen by you. It is also used by LiveDNA algorithms to help distinguish your identity from another person who may have a similar name, be in a similar field, or may be confused with you for other reasons. This information is not shared with others.
Information marked as "Limited" can be seen by any Trusted Parties that you have authorized to connect to your LiveDNA Record. These connections require explicit action on your part. You will be asked if you would like to make a specific connection, and once you have confirmed, the Trusted Party will be able to see information that you have marked as limited-access.
