ORCID works like a driver's license number or your Spartan ID#. It is your research fingerprint -- providing a number that uniquely identifies you and your research.
Each ORCID ID is a 16 digit identification number.
Register your ORCID at orcid.org/register! Registration takes 30 seconds.
Fill out your ORCID record! Add your professional information, education history, link to other identifiers, and include all your scholarship -- published articles, book chapters, conference posters.
Include your ORCID ID on your website, when you submit publications, and when you apply for grants.
