ORCID disambiguates researchers, and connects people with their research activities. This includes employment affiliations, research outputs, funding, peer review activity, research resources, society membership, distinctions and other scholarly infrastructure.
Connections are made by using our API within your existing workflows
ORCID serves as an information hub, enabling your authors and reviewers to reliably connect to their contributions, and to share information from their ORCID record as they interact with your system.
By using ORCID in your systems, you can uniquely identify the people you work with and discover information about them. You can also play your part in building a trusted research infrastructure by asserting connections between researchers and their activities. You simply ask them for permission, and then update their records with the information you hold.
