ORCID Author Identifier: Distinguish Yourself in Three Easy Steps

Faculty members and graduate students are invited to attend a drop-in session where they will receive hands-on assistance in setting up and populating an ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) account.

In order for scholarly work to be found in a global network of researchers, it is essential to differentiate authors. ORCID makes this easy by attaching an unambiguous identity to publications, funding and other research activities. As researchers collaborate across disciplines, institutions, and geographic borders, having a unique author or researcher ID ensures credit for your scholarly output.

ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and link research activities and outputs to these identifiers. Many publishers and funding agencies now require or encourage authors to create an ORCID account.

Drop-in dates and location:

Tuesday, February 20th,  2:00 to 3:00 PM – LIB393A

Thursday, February 22nd, 2:00 to 3:00 PM – LIB393A

If you are not able to attend these sessions and would like to schedule a one-to-one appointment, please contact Brian Cameron at bcameron@ryerson.ca or Naomi Eichenlaub at neichenl@ryerson.ca.
