What is ORCID?

What is ORCID?

  • An open, non-profit, community-based effort to create and maintain a registry of unique research identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers
  • ORCID provides a standard unique author identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized
  • ORCID Registry aims to prevent authorship confusion
  • Some publishers will require an ORCID ID in the ScienCV platform, for linking researchers, their grants and their scientific output
  • To create your own ORCID ID, simply go to the ORCID website--http://orcid.org/-- and register
 

Mission Statement

ORCID aims to solve the name ambiguity problem in research and scholarly communications by creating a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers and an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID and other current researcher ID schemes. These identifiers, and the relationships among them, can be linked to the researcher's output to enhance the scientific discovery process and to improve the efficiency of research funding and collaboration within the research community.
