Have you got your ORCID iD yet?

You can find out more about ORCID iDs and how to sign-up at the University’s ORCID pages.

“ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.” (https://orcid.org/)

ORCID recently overhauled its Help pages with lots of new guides and help articles around “What is ORCID?” and how to use ORICD iDs to build trust and save time. Read more about the update in Laura Wilkinson’s blog post.

It is also worthwhile to have a look at the short “Why ORCID?” video. Here, researchers from all over the world explain in just over 4 minutes how using their ORCID iD has helped them get the most out of their precious research time. Watch out for some familiar faces from St Andrews!
