What is IdRef?
“IdRef (Identifiants et Référentiels pour l’Enseignement supérieur et la Recherche) is a web application developed and maintained by ABES. IdRef allows users and third-party applications to query, consult, create and enrich authorities.”
How to obtain an IdRef identifier?
The attribution of an IdRef number is automatic as soon as you have defended a thesis or appear in one of the ABES catalogues as an author.
