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 Outreach Toolkit provides an easy-to-follow 3-step plan for creating anticipation, action, and awareness about ORCID and its benefits for individuals.
