ORCID is a nonprofit organization helping create a world in which all who participate in research, scholarship and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions and affiliations, across disciplines, borders, and time.
The ORCID community advocates for assigning and managing persistent and unambiguous personal identifiers for use in the scholarly attribution chain. This enhances discovery of authors and content across disciplines.
In particular, ORCID system provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages/interoperability between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

Interoperability - created through ORCID - means:
MEMBERS MAKE ORCID POSSIBLE
ORCID is a non-profit organization supported by a global community of organizational members, including research organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders in the research ecosystem.
DISTINGUISH YOURSELF WITH ORCID IN THREE EASY STEPS
1. REGISTER : Get your unique ORCID identifier Register now! Registration takes 30 seconds.
2. ADD YOUR INFO : Enhance your ORCID record with your professional information and link to your other identifiers (such as Scopus or ResearcherID or LinkedIn).
3. USE YOUR ORCID ID : Include your ORCID identifier on your Webpage, when you submit publications, apply for grants, and in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work.
Underpinning everything is ORCID authentication - requiring users to log into their ORCID record to share their iD, rather than keying in or pasting their ORCID iD into a data field.
