Why get an ORCID ID?

This video below explains how ORCID works and the benefits it brings to researchers.

More benefits of having an ORCID iD:

  • The number of publishers requiring an ORCiD upon manuscript submission is growing.
  • Less hassle because metadata can be re-used for different e-infrastructures (no need to re-type everything!), so more time to do research.
  • More and more funding institutions are supporting the use of ORCID iDs. Researchers receiving H2020 funding are encouraged to use their ORCID iDs for all communication outputs.
  • With an ORCID iD it is very easy to get an online overview of all research results.
  • Having an ORCID iD increases the author’s visibility and it is easier to find the author’s publications.
