What is ORCID?
ORCID, which stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is a free, unique, persistent identifier (an ORCID iD) that researchers can use to distinguish themselves, and their research. ORCID also provides a research profile that links a researcher's research outputs and activities to their ORCID iD.
ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services.
