An ORCID iD is a unique researcher identifier which can be added to your outputs to ensure your work is easily distinguished from that of other researchers. ORCID is an international scheme with over 1.5 million iDs registered by researchers, and is now used by an increasing number of publishers, funders and universities.

You manage your ORCID profile. Your ORCID profile number can be linked to a range of information sources such as publications, grants, education and employment history.
