ORCID logo

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. By obtaining an ORCID, you have a persistent identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers that links you to all your research output and other professional activities. It allows you to be recognized, helps your data (and yourself!) become more discoverable, and can strengthen collaboration in the research community!

The best part is--it's free! Register to get your own ORCID identifier!
