    What is an ORCID ID and why should you get one?

    Have you been asked for an ORCID ID when submitting a manuscript to a journal or in grant submission systems? Do you have a common name or have publications under different aliases? Would you like to keep track of your research outputs all in one place? Attend this online workshop to learn more about ORCID IDs and why you should get one, how to get your free ORCID ID, and how to set up your ORCID profile.

    ORCID is increasingly integrated into research systems, including ScienCV. Some funders (such as the Department of Energy) and publishers (such as PLOS and Nature), want you to provide your ORCID ID when you submit a proposal or manuscript. ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor Identification. The purpose of ORCID is to disambiguate authors of scholarly work and to better connect researchers to their research output and to each other. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers.
