A stylized logo that says ORCiD.


ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifiers) are unique digital identifiers that distinguish you from every other researcher and helps to identify your scholarly work.

Unlike other research IDs, your ORCID iD is universal. It's not tied to any institution or database, and it can follow you wherever your research takes you.

Publishers, funders, research institutions, and other organizations are increasingly adopting or supporting ORCID.
