Distinguish Yourself and Your Research with an ORCID iD

An ORCID iD is a unique researcher identifier which can be added to your research outputs to ensure that your work is easily distinguished from that of other researchers. ORCID is becoming an international standard with over 2.9 million iDs registered by researchers.

ORCID iDs are increasingly being used by research organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders across the research ecosystem. ORCID member logo

Your ORCID profile is managed by you and can be linked to a range of information such as publications, grants, education and employment history.
