What is ORCID?

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier) is a non-profit organization that provides benefits to researchers, research organizations, funders, and publishers worldwide.

An ORCID iD is a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers, enabling them to authenticate and associate their professional activities and publications with their unique record. This ensures proper attribution and permanent showcasing of their scholarly contributions.

ORCID iDs are actively encouraged and integrated into workflows by funders and research organizations to facilitate connections throughout the research lifecycle and support various aspects, including indexing, search, publication tracking, funding, and peer review.
