Your research is important and we want to help you ensure it is making an impact. ORCiD is a great way to start increasing your research impact with minimal effort.
What is ORCiD?
An ORCiD ID is a permanent unique identifier for researchers. Using your ORCID iD is more accurate and secure than a name: many people can have the same name but each ORCID iD is unique. They protect your unique scholarly identity and help you keep your publication record up-to-date with very little effort.
Why should you get an ORCiD ID?
ORCiD ID’s are permanent and will follow you throughout your entire career.
ORCiD is increasingly used by individuals (e.g. as a signature in emails) and systems (e.g. in Scopus, PubMed), enabling recognition and discoverability.
ORCiD automatically updates your profile from other systems – saving you time.
ORCiD is unique to you.
