ORCID Explained

What is ORCiD?

ORCID provides researchers with a globally unique iD that can be used throughout their scholarly career. In an international research environment, your ORCID distinguishes your research output from all other researchers to ensure consistent, reliable attribution of your work and accurate measurement of your research impact. ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID.

You should register for an ORCID identifier to get a:

  • Unique, persistent identifier
  • Profile page which can include your list of publications.

Note: ORCID does not track citations and your ORCID profile will not include citation counts.
