ORCID, short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, provides a persistent digital identifier that helps researchers and scholars to distinguish their research activities from those of others with similar names. ORCID is being incorporated into publisher workflows, grant applications, and research repositories and search engines.

For more information about ORCID, including setting up your own ORCID identifier please click on the link to the Library's Subject Guide for Research: Researcher Identification.
