Distinguish your research with ORCID


ORCID ("Open Researcher and Contributor IDentifier") is a unique personal number that distinguishes you as a researcher from other researchers. ORCID is an international, interdisciplinary, open, non-profit organization created by the research community.

This only takes a few minutes

Why do I need an ORCID?

  • It distinguishes you and ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
  • Save time when submitting an article or grant application.
  • Your publications become easier to find.
  • ORCID is compatible with many other Author Identifiers, funders and publishers.
  • You can continue to use your ORCID throughout your career. Regardless of name change or employer change.

Stay in control

You can link your ORCID to other systems and organizations, but you decide which links you allow and what information you make public or share.
