ORCiD stands for Open Researcher and Contributor iD. You can register for free directly on the ORCID site or via your UOW Scholars profile. Your unique iD makes you distinctive from every other researcher and is a reliable, consistent way to link all of your research outputs and activities in the one record. You can add publications, grants, peer review activities, patents and more.
ORCID links your research contributions to your name so that you can distinguish yourself from others and get the recognition you deserve. If you share the same name as someone else or use different versions of your name when publishing, your ORCID iD helps to avoid confusion about whose research output it is. Publishers also ask for ORCID iD so they can connect your work with you and ensure correct attribution.
Funders such as ARC and NHMRC are requesting ORCID iDs to streamline the grant submission process. ARC integrates ORCID IDs into RMS to help auto-populate application forms and save you time.
ORCID is recognised globally and helps optimise your research visibility by showcasing your research output worldwide.
