ORCID

ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID.  It is a sixteen-digit permanent digital identifier for researchers.  It is an international standard to help researchers to establish and maintain their scholarly identity.  It aims to solve common issues such as:

  • not getting credit for our research because your name is common or because you have published using a different version of your name
  • struggling to find a central place to keep track of all your research outputs
  • having to spend time entering the same information over and over in publisher and grant submission systems
