What is ORCiD?
ORCiD stands for Open Researchers and Contributor ID. The ORCID initiative creates persistent, unique identifiers for researchers.
ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID) 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 iD protects your scholarly identity by making sure you have a space to collect all of your scholarly works.
ORCID supports many types of “works” from traditional articles to art works and dance performances to datasets and more.
ORCID iDs 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 reviewing 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
NIH, AHRQ, and CDC Requirement for ORCID iDs for Individuals Supported by Research Training, Fellowship, Research Education, and Career Development Awards Beginning in FY 2020 NOT-OD-19-109
Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is an electronic system available through the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Researchers can use SciENcv to create and maintain biosketches that must be submitted with NIH and NSF grant applications and annual reports. SciENcv pulls information from other systems, including MyNCBI, ORCID, and eRA commons in order to ease administrative burden and allow researchers to quickly create and recreate biosketch for each grant application or annual report.
