What is ORCID?  icon links to ORCID video
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers.

Why should I have an ORCID ID?
ORCID allows you to easily and uniquely attach your identity to all kinds of scholarly work:  datasets, articles, books and book chapters, media stories, theses, protocols, patents, etc. ORCID helps researchers distinguish your work from other scholars with similar names.

ORCID IDs are now being used by many journal publishers and databases such as Nature Publishing Group, IEEE, PLoS, Scopus and Web of Science.

How do I use my ORCID ID?
Include your ORCID identifier on your Webpage, when you submit publications, apply for grants, and in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work.
