One of the big problems for attributing research activities and outputs correctly to a researcher is name ambiguities:
By registering and using an ORCID ID you can easily distinguish yourself and assure that your work is attributed only to yourself.
An ORCID ID can reduce repetitive data entry. As ORCID is becoming increasingly implemented into other systems, the reuse of profile or publication data is being facilitated more easily.
This can iclude data:
You can also add your ORCID details to your UCD RMS profile to help others discover your work:
Unlike other platforms and databases which may only cover a portion of your total output (e.g. Scopus or Web of Science), or only certain types of outputs (e.g. journal articles), you can add all of your publications, works and activities to your ORCID profile to create a comprehensive listing in one place, including outputs like datasets, peer review activities and more.
By using ORCID's API the system works as a hub to connect many research activties.
You need to be able to easily and uniquely associate your identity to research outputs such as datasets, equipment, articles, media stories, citations, experiments, patents, and notebooks.
By using ORCID you can ensure that all your research activities and outputs are easily discoverable.
