What is ORCID?

ORCID provides researchers with a unique identifier and a mechanism for linking their research outputs and activities to their ORCID.

ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services.

Why register? Your ORCID:

  • Is required by many journal manuscript submission systems and grant application forms.
  • Is endorsed by the Australian Research Council, the National Health and Medical Research Council, and other funding bodies.
  • Distinguishes you and ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you.
  • Is a reliable and easy connection between you, your contributions and affiliations.
  • Reduces form-filling: you enter data once, have it reused often.
  • Improves recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs.
  • Can be used throughout your whole research career.
