ORCID is an open, non-profit and community driven initiative.

The 16-digit Open Researcher and Contributor ID, or ORCID is a persistent and unique digital identifier which enables researchers and institutions to maintain a consolidated record of all of their research activities. It also facilitates eligible individuals and organisations in tracking research expertise globally, without naming ambiguity.

ORCID IDs are increasingly used as a search term/method for enhanced research visibility and discoverability.

The benefits of ORCID include:

  • Interoperability across publisher submission systems, funding agencies, research repositories, research institutions and supporting automated updating of ORCID researcher profiles (e.g. via databases such as Web of Science and Scopus).
  • Elimination of name ambiguities arising from differing name formats, change of names, similar names at the same institution, names with diacritical marks and names appearing in different writing systems.
  • Facilitation of a comprehensive listing of research outputs in one place, including datasets, peer review activities and more.
  • Improves discoverability by associating your identity to the whole range of your research outputs (articles, citations, datasets, equipment, media stories, experiments, patents, and notebooks).
  • Saving of time through the reuse of publication data as it increasingly works with other systems (manuscript submissions to publishers, funding applications, research tools such as Scopus, and employers or professional associations.
