Don’t have an ORCID? Now’s the time to join the 3.5 million researchers around the world who do!

Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is all about you and here’s why you should create one today:

1.    You’re unique!  You can uniquely identify yourself to make sure you get credit for all of your work.  What’s in a name? Having an ORCID helps to distinguish your work from other researchers with the same or a similar name.

2.    That’s my work! You can connect your ORCID with your publications, grants, your research activity and your online research profile.

3.    Save me time!  Publishers and funding agencies are increasingly asking researchers for their ORCID as part of manuscript submission for publishing and for grant applications. Having an ORCID will save you time, enter once and re-use often.
