What is ORCID?

ORCID provides a persistent identifier – an ORCID iD – that distinguishes you from other researchers and a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your iD. Use your ORCID iD to link your institutional profile, funding applications, research and scholarly societies, repositories, manuscript submission systems, and other research identifiers together.
