What is ORCiD?

ORCiD is a tool for name disambiguation, so creating an ORCiD ID will help to ensure that your scholarly work is properly attributed to you and not another researcher with the same or similar name or initials.

If you haven’t already, you will start to see ORCiD ID being required or recommended in a variety of professional settings – from grant applications to journal submissions and publications.
