Why use ORCID?
ORCID makes it easier for organizations to keep track of sponsored programs, research outputs, and other activities that your researchers are involved in by allowing institutions to:
Uniquely identify individual researchers
Streamline reporting workflows for gathering data about researchers’ activities, in order to measure institutional impact and/or assess individual contributions for performance review, promotion, & tenure
Confirm affiliations with researchers to improve accuracy & trust in the research and scholarly communication landscape
Stay connected with researchers even after they leave your institution
Save time and reduce administrative burden by using automated data transfer in research reporting workflows (via the ORCID API)
Leverage interoperability across both internal and external stakeholder systems & workflows
