Don’t have an ORCID yet?
ORCID, which stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is a free, unique, persistent identifier (PID) for individuals to use as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. We provide ORCID to researchers free of charge so that we may realize our vision of connecting all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time.
Learn how ORCID can help you spend more time conducting your research and less time managing it.
Ensure your ORCID is connected so you can easily share your data between your record and an increasing number of funders, publishers, data repositories, and other research workflows.
