ORCiD & SciENcv


What is ORCiD?

ORCiD stands for Open Researchers Contribution iD. The ORCiD initiative creates persistent, unique identifiers for researchers.

Why do I need ORCiD?

ORCiD is an open, non-profit organization that aims to minimize the problem of name ambiguity in scientific communication and to ensure that people get proper credit for all of their research. An ORCiD protects your scholarly identify by making sure you have a space to collect all of your scholarly works.

ORCiD supports types of 'works' from traditional articles to art works and dance performances to datasets and more.

ORCiD ID's are used by publishers, funders, associations and other organizations to make sure your work is correctly attributed to you, to unambiguously differentiate you from other scholars with the same name, and to streamline workflows such as submitting and receiving journal articles, applying for funding and more.

  • The iD is a globally unique and permanent identifier that stays with you for life
  • Use ORCiD to maintain your publishing and professional data
  • Link to your ORCiD account in SciENcv to import the data into the SciENcv profile
  • Takes only a few minutes to create
  • You own your ORCiD iD, not your employer or publisher
  • You can control who views your ORCiD information
