ORCiD: Getting started with ORCiD

What is ORCiD?

ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor iD) is a global non-profit organisation that provides a unique identifier for researchers to link their outputs with their research identity and get credit for their work

Why should I get an ORCiD iD?

It helps link your research contributions to your name so that you can distinguish yourself from others and get the recognition you deserve

Do you...?  
Share the same name as someone else or use different versions of your name when publishing? You can use your unique ORCiD iD along with your name so there's no confusion as to whose research output it is.
Apply for grant funding? Funders such as ARC and NHMRC are requesting ORCiD iDs to streamline the grant submission process.
Submit manuscripts for publication? Publishers are asking for ORCiD iD so they can connect your work with you and ensure correct attribution.
Want to make your research more discoverable? ORCiD is a global registry that helps optimise research visibility by showcasing your research output worldwide.

 

How do I get an ORCiD iD?

Register directly on the ORCiD site or if you have a UOW Scholars profile, use the Identity tab to sign up and link your profile to your iD.

Already have an ORCiD iD? Make sure to link it with your Scholars profile
