Do you worry about getting credit for your research because your name is common or you have publications under multiple aliases? 
Do you struggle to keep track of all of your research outputs? Are you annoyed by having to enter the same information over and 
over in manuscript and grant submission systems?


  • Researchers own and control what information in their ORCID profile may be shared. (See ORCID's privacy policy.)
  • Links authors to their scholarly output including datasets, articles, conference preprints and other works.
  • Research output from other sources (including ResearcherID, Scopus, and DataCite) can easily be imported. 
  • Numerous organizations and publishers integrate with ORCID including American Geophysical Union, American Physical Society, and CERN. (See a complete list of integrators.)
  • Registration is free. 
  • This is not another social network. 
  • Be able to use and display your ORCID on websites: ORCID logo
  • Current ORCID statistics

The University Libraries and the University of Oklahoma are members of ORCID as part of a consortium formed by the Greater Western Library Alliance. ORCID integration is being added to the institutional repository ShareOK which will automatically link with a researcher's ORCID profile. 

ORCID is also part of the OU Impact Challenge and is in fact the first chapter with a very nice walkthrough of the registration process.
