ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) (‘or-kid) is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of persistent unique digital identifiers which are linked to researchers' scholarly and grant activities.
Enhance your ORCID record with your professional information and link to your other identifiers (such as Scopus or ResearcherID or LinkedIn). Include your ORCID identifier on your Webpage, when you submit publications, apply for grants etc.
ORCID is being adopted by:
With an ORCID identifier, researchers can manage:
ORCID is integrated with ResearcherID and Scopus Author ID to exchange data both ways. Once signed into your ORCID profile, go to Works > Add Works > Search & link > "ResearcherID" OR "Scopus to ORCID".
Import publications from Google Scholar, EndNote, and other sources supporting BibTex format.
Registration for an ORCID ID is easy:
Add variants of your name, country, keywords to describe areas of interest, personal websites, personal information, education, and employment.
To add publications to your ORCID profile, you can:
Depending on the discipline, stage of academic career and number of publications, it may be more productive to first create and populate ResearcherID and/or Scopus Author ID profiles and then import the publication data to ORCID.
No citations metrics within ORCID at this time.
No authomatic de-duplication for publications imported from different sources.
No importing wizard for patents (may be added manually or through Google Scholar Citations importing).
