ORCID stands for Online Research Contributor iD. It provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and ensures that your work is recognized.
Once you've created an ORCID iD, it's easy to add your scholarly works to your ORCID record, enable automatic updates, and delegate management of your record to someone else.
Include your ORCID identifier on your webpage, when you submit publications, apply for grants, and in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work.
This guide was originally created in 2019 by Wei-Chun Chou, graduate student in the School of Information. Also, many thanks to the Cornell ORCID guide which served as a model for this guide.
