Open Researcher and Contributor ID provides a persistent digital identifier for researchers

ORCID Collect & Connect

ORCID provides a persistent identifier – an ORCID iD – that distinguishes you from other researchers and a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your iD.

ORCID is now integrated with UCD's Research Management System through ORCID Collect & Connect. This means that UCD researchers can link their RMS Profile with their ORCID to identify and import their publications and outputs. This link capability works to import from an RMS profile to ORCID and vice versa. 

UCD is also an ORCID Member Organisation. See here for more details on the benefits of ORCID membership for organisations.

ORCID Integration with UCD RMS Profiles

UCD researchers and academic staff can link their ORCID to their UCD RMS Profile:

When you click the “Authorize” button, we will ask you to share your iD using an authenticated process: either by registering for an ORCID iD or, if you already have one, by signing into your ORCID account, then granting us permission to get your ORCID iD. We do this to ensure that you are correctly identified and securely connecting your ORCID iD. Learn more about What’s so special about signing in.

To acknowledge that you have used your iD and that it has been authenticated, we display the ORCID iD icon  alongside your name on our website/in our publications/in our database etc.​ 

Filling in the same information about yourself over and over again is frustrating. That’s why we let you choose information from your ORCID record to populate our RMS Profiles System. Learn more in Enter once, reuse often

By sharing your iD with UCD, and giving us permission to read and update your ORCID record, you enable us to help you keep your record up-to-date with trusted information. Learn more in Six ways to make your ORCID iD work for you!

UCD is making it possible for you to easily share your research information and keep it up-to-date. With your permission, we will synchronize information between RMS Profiles and your ORCID record, every day.
