As a benefit of ORCID membership, organizations can ask ORCID to support additional PID types in the ORCID Registry. For example, a member could request that we add support for the PIDs they use for identifying samples or datasets in their geology database. This enables links between the samples and the people who collected them. And, because all new PID types that we add must be at least resolvable, and preferably FAIR, those links are unambiguous, persistent over time, and actionable - benefitting the researcher, the member organization, and the wider community.
Adding Your PID!
As a community organization, we want to ensure that ORCID supports the PIDs used by our members. We maintain a complete list of existing identifiers supported in the Registry, and invite ORCID members to use this form to request additional PIDs. We aim to respond to your request as soon as possible.
