As a Researcher ORCID provides you with a unique identifier

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

ORCID enables collaboration

ORCID provides open tools that enable transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations. We provide this service to help people find information and to simplify reporting and analysis.

Research Funding

For research funders, including professional and scholarly associations, ORCID can unambiguously link researchers to their research and the funding programmes that provided support.  Understanding the impact of funding is a vital input into future funding strategy and funding programme design.

Research Organisations

For research organisations—universities, research companies, national laboratories, membership organizations—ORCID can reduce the time-consuming process of maintaining up-to-date records, and provides a validation step with updates from trusted sources.
