ORCID: Connecting Research & Researchers

ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID) is a non-profit organization driving an international initiative to provide a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. ORCID supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is correctly attributed. ORCID works with more than 400 member organizations to achieve this goal in a variety of systems such as researcher profile services, journal publishers, manuscript submission systems, institutional repositories, grant management systems, and more.
This session will introduce how ORCID identifiers are being used in different stages of scholarly communication, and how you can exploit ORCID during the progress of your research career.
