Researcher Identifiers, Profiles and Social Networks: ORCID
ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. It is a unique, permanent identifier that is controlled by you and travels with you throughout your career.
Your ORCID can be linked to other Researcher IDs and profiles to provide a consistent way to connect all your research outputs and activities in the one record.
You can register for free directly via your NURO profile or the ORCID site.
Why use ORCID?
You can easily link your ORCID to NURO and other researcher identifiers such as your Scopus Author Identifier, Web of Science ResearcherID and institutions or funders to ensure that all platforms are up-to-date.
Your ORCID will distinguish you from other researchers, including those who may have the same name.
Your ORCID will help research outputs be correctly attributed to you.
You can connect contributions and affiliations to you via your ORCID.
An ORCID is increasingly required by journals, publishers and funding bodies including the NHMRC and ARC.
