ORCID Explained

What is ORCID?

ORCID is an open, non-profit service that assigns a specific ID number to each registered researcher in order to reduce problematic identity issues. It can also link all of your other profile ID's (including Thomson Reuters ResearcherID, Google Scholars My Citations and Scopus) into a single profile. It is the only ID that enables you to link your research data to your profile. 

Connecting your ID to the UWA Research Repository has the following benefits:

  • Your ORCID list of works will automatically be updated when new outputs are added to the Repository.
  • Your ORCID ID will appear in your researcher profile in the UWA Research Repository.
  • An official UWA affiliation will be added to your ORCID record.
  • The University can use your ID to identify your research outputs.
