"ORCID aims to solve the name ambiguity problem in research and scholarly communications by creating a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers and an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID and other current researcher ID schemes. These identifiers, and the relationships among them, can be linked to the researcher's output to enhance the scientific discovery process and to improve the efficiency of research funding and collaboration within the research community."
ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID) is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-profit, transparent, mobile and community-based.
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and contributor and supports automated linkages across all your professional activities.
ORCID provides two core functions:
ORCID is available free of charge to individuals, who may obtain an ORCID identifier, manage their record of outputs and activities, and search for others in the registry.
The ORCID web site maintains a list of institutions and organizations with established ORCID programs in place or in progress. The fast-growing list of ORCID adopters includes:
Publishers and Presses including eLife Sciences, Elsevier, Wiley, Public Library of Science, Hindawi Publishing Group, Institute of Physics Publishing, to name a few
