IPIs are unique identifiers assiged to songwriters. We display them on artist profiles when available. What's new is that we now also display the number of works associated with each IPI.
See for example Clyde Otis :
The IPIs 00018596950 1 work and 00023125923 42 works have (most likely) been imported via the PRO work codes.
The IPIs 00501651770 and 00039875926 have been added manually by editors, but are not associated to works in our database (yet). In the past, these IPIs were NOT displayed at all.
Bringing this to the attention of Mark_Heyrman , who has become our IPI specialist
