What is ORCID?
An ORCID iD is a unique and persistent identifier for researchers – an ID number that can help make your scholarship easier to find and attribute so that you get credit for all that you do.
Having an ORCID iD will help:
- Make your work discoverable by others
- Connect your research to you throughout your career, no matter how your name appears in publication
- Distinguish you from other researchers with similar names
- Minimize the time you spend entering data when submitting research for publication or applying for grants
Another good reason to register:
Researchfish has recently become a member of the ORCID community and are integrating with the ORCID iD researcher identification registry, this will enable researchers to transfer publicaitons to and from their ORCID account.
