Initiate these steps to get started with ORCID
Register with ORCID
Learn ways to use your ORCID (when submitting manuscripts, applying for grants, showcasing your work etc)
Share with others: coupling your ID with your professional information - affiliations, grants, publications, collaborations
- when submitting manuscripts
- when applying for grants
- on institutional profile pages
- to connect your existing profiles together eg SCOPUS, ResearcherID
These are the categories that typically appear on an ORCID record:
- Alternative forms of name
- Biographical details
- Employment (current and former)
- Body of work (publications, conferences etc)
- Peer review activity
- Other IDs
Your ORCID ID is made up of 16 digits, and is unique to you.
The 16 digits are separated by hyphens (into groups of four) and preceded by "https://orcid.org/"
This is the format that you will use to promote your ORCID ID (in your published material, in online profiles, on social media posts, as an email footer in your correspondence, or on your other researcher profile pages)
Once obtained, the ID is unique to you, and will endure throughout name changes and the use of name variations (such as shortened first names), organisational moves, and so on.
