ORCID Outreach Resources

In order for institutions to benefit from ORCID, individual researchers and contributors must:

1) register for an ORCID iD

2) populate their ORCID iD record with information, and

3) use their ORCID iD and grant permission for trusted assertions and auto-update.

The ORCID US Community Outreach Planning Guide provides a step-by-step checklist of resources, examples, and strategies for promoting ORCID to researchers. Additionally, the ORCID Outreach Toolkit provides a 3-step plan for creating anticipation, action, and awareness about ORCID and its benefits for individuals.
