ORCID for Researchers

The problem ...

As a researcher you want to be sure that

  • your publications can be found easily
  • your publications are identified as your work

You want to avoid
  • that your publications are connected to a person with a similar name
  • entering your publication data over and over again

... the solution: ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID)

ORCiD is an open, non-commercial and community-based service which provides a register of unique identifiers to distinguish researchers from each others. It is supported by universities, academies, funder institutions, publishers, libraries and other stakeholders worldwide.
