What Is an ORCID iD
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit system that provides unique identifiers to researchers across all disciplines. It is rapidly becoming a cross-disciplinary standard. It also works with other ID systems, which means it can connect different research systems and save you time on entering data.
