Identify Yourself: an ORCID iD ensures you get credit for ALL of your work

Drop-in sessions offered at Bannatyne Campus in February/Marchorcid img

Do you worry about getting credit for your research because your name is common or
you have publications under multiple aliases? Do you struggle to keep track of all of your research outputs? Are you annoyed by having to enter the same
information over and over in manuscript and grant submission systems?

To solve these problems, there’s now ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-proprietary, transparent, mobile, and community-based. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier to DISTINGUISH YOU from all other researchers, AUTOMATICALLY LINKING your professional activities. For example,

  • Funding organizations are requesting ORCID iDs during grant submission and plan to use them to reduce the burden of grant submission
  • Publishers are collecting ORCID iDs during manuscript submission, and your ORCID iD becomes a part of your publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you

Over time, this collaborative effort will reduce redundant entry of biographical and bibliographical data into multiple systems, such as grant applications, Common CV and ResearchGate. Your ORCID will belong to you throughout your scholarly career as a persistent identifier to distinguish you from other researchers and ensure consistent, reliable attribution of your work. ORCID can be synced to your author profile in Scopus and Web of Science, and entries can be manually added.
