  I am not sure I follow your request. There are researcher documents
  claims available against bibliographic data in the OKFN sponsored
  (but running out of disk space) 3lib.org project. You can regard
  these claims are researcher identification records. These are
  available at ftp://authorclaim.org.  License is CC0. I think you

  are freely reusable.
