ORCID : Connecting Research & Researchers : Distinguish Yourself in Three Easy Steps

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. Find out more.

Interoperability - created through ORCID - means: 

  • for research institutions - validating their researchers’ affiliation(s);
  • for publishers - validating their works (publications, reviews, datasets, and more); 
  • and for funders - validating their awards and grants.
