What is ORCID

What is ORCID?

ORCID provides researchers with a unique identifier (an ORCID iD) plus a mechanism for linking their research outputs and activities to their ORCID iD.

ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services.

Why should you register?

Your ORCID iD:

  • distinguishes you and ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
  • reliably and easily connects you with your contributions and affiliations
  • reduces form-filling (enter data once, re-use it often)
  • improves recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs
  • is interoperable (works with many institutions, funders, and publishers)
  • is persistent (enduring)

It is also a requirement of many journal manuscript submission systems and grant application forms.
