Why an ORCID? Why a researcher profile?
ORCID provides a unique, personal identification number (like a DOI, but for you as an author) as well as the option to have a publicly available web profile highlighting your professional activities. An ORCID is useful for many reasons:
- Many funding agencies require it.
- Journals often require authors to submit their ORCIDs with their manuscripts – in fact, some journals accept ORCID login in as part of their submission process.
- ORCID numbers can be useful for ensuring all of your work is attributed to you, and not someone with a similar name.
- You can use ORCID to feed and display your research on your faculty website, lab, etc.
- Your public profile can be adjusted to reflect publications, grant awards, and other professional contributions that you want to highlight for prospective employers, funders, or collaborators.
