More about ORCID
ORCID recognizes that you own your record of contributions. You can maintain all of your key information in one place, and you control your own privacy settings, including what information is displayed publicly, what is shared only with trusted partners, and who those trusted partners are.
ORCID is founded on interoperability with multiple systems and institutions. ORCID allows you to link with other identifier systems, including those maintained by funders and publishers, and exchange data freely with those research information systems.
Registration is free and fast for all researchers and scholars.
