What does ORCID stand for?
ORCID stands for Open Researcher & Contributor ID
How do I obtain an ORCID?
Why should I obtain an ORCID?
ORCID provides a unique persistent digital identifier that allows researchers to distinguish themselves from every other researcher. The ID offers a mechanism to distinguish individuals with common names, and are not affected by name changes, cultural differences in name order, inconsistent first-name abbreviations, or the use of different alphabets.
How can I associate publications with my ORCID?
Most scholarly publishers accept ORCID’s during manuscript submissions. If you give publishers permission to do so, they can automatically update your ORCID profile when the submitted article is published.
You may also import publications, patents, grants and other works into your record any time.
- Sign in to manage your ORCID record.
- Click the “Add works” option once you are in your profile.
You will then be given several options for searching for, importing or uploading publications to your profile.
