Have you got your ORCID number yet?
What is ORCiD?ORCiD, or « Open Researcher
Contributor Identification Initiative » is an alphanumeric code uniquely
assigned to scientific and academic authors.
Why to get an ORCiD I.D.?· Due to many duplicates or
variations of a single personal name, one particular author’s
contributions to academia can be hard to electronically recognize.
· Similarly, with name changes due
to marriage, cultural differences in name order and differing writing
systems, inconsistent use of a name and first-name abbreviations, and
even false identities, many works can become lost or confused in a sea
of “John Smiths”.
· Its free.
· An unchangeable and universally
recognized identity, as offered by ORCiD, therefore makes attribution of
works, and discovery of articles much easier; your work is much more
easily distinguishable from others with similar names; you can therefore
easily add your unique identity to research objects across disciplines
without having to consistently re-enter the same data.
· Launched in October 2012, ORCiD
now has over 65 member organizations, including many publishers, such as
Elsevier, Springer, Wiley and Thomson Reuters Research.
