Faculty members, graduate students and staff are invited to register for a workshop where they will receive an overview of ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), as well as hands-on assistance in setting up and populating an account.
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.
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. Please see this video for more information about ORCID.
