​What is ORCID?

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-driven initiative to create and maintain a global registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers. ORCID provides a framework for trustworthy identity management by linking research contributions and related activities across the scholarly communication ecosystem.

Individuals can obtain a unique ORCID iD for free. ORCID iDs serve as digital identifiers that distinguish individual researchers from other researchers and enables them to manage their records. Register for an ORCID iD.

Organizations can integrate ORCID into digital platforms and workflows to reduce administrative burden and connect ORCID iD records with institutional repositories, publishing platforms, HR systems, grant applications, and more. Learn more about ORCID for organizations.
