Establishing your researcher identity with ORCID

ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, and they look like a credit card number: 0000-0001-6022-2666.

 

It is your personal ID for researchers, what ISBN is for books, ISSN for journals and DOI for articles and data. It provides a unique and persistent personal identifier for researchers and scholars, connecting you and your research activities throughout your career.

ORCID is free, open, mobile, and community-driven. Signing up for an ORCID identifier and using it in your research workflows will ensure that you receive credit for your work. It can also simplify manuscript submissions and improve author search results.

You can think of ORCID as the academic equivalent of your passport number. It ensures other research systems and services know who you are.

Unlike Google Scholar, Academia.edu, or ResearchGate, ORCID is NOT a research profile system. In fact, having and using an ORCID ID will facilitate the maintenance of researcher profiles that you already have. ORCID is an increasingly important part of the global research infrastructure.
