ORCID—optimizing research discoverability

As a researcher, it is critical to your reputation and career that research and scholarly organizations, funders, publishers, scholarly societies and associations, and your fellow researchers be able to quickly and unambiguously identify and attribute your work – and only your work – to you. How can you ensure that you are receiving credit and correct attribution for your work?

ORCID helps you easily and reliably link your identity with your contributions including datasets, published articles, books, patents, grants, and more. ORCID provides a unique and persistent identifier that links your name to your professional activities throughout your career and enables you to maintain a continuous online record all in one place.

ORCID helps you:

  • Ensure your work is connected to you
  • Minimize time spent on entering repetitive data
  • Eliminate name ambiguity
