2016#0047-orcid-news-164x133.jpgDrop into the Library and learn more about ORCID

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier) is a unique identifier which identifies an author‘s publications and research activity and disambiguates from other authors with similar names. An ORCID enables a researcher to distinguish themselves and their research outputs and travels with a researcher throughout their career and across organisations, institutions and countries.  ORCID is being adopted around the world by publishers, research organisations and research funding bodies.  This will assist with creating automatic linkage between a researcher and their publications, dataset, grants, patents and other author IDs.

UON has joined the Australian ORCID Consortium and as an ORCID Member Organisation are encouraging UON researchers to register for an ORCID which can then be included in submission of publications to a publisher, in research grants, CVs, web profiles, etc.
