  11. 11. What does ORCID do? ORCID provides a unique and persistent identifier that can be used throughout one’s career, across professional activities, affiliations, and languages More than a registry, ORCID iDs are integrated in standard workflows and embedded in works metadata so moving forward there is no more mess to clean up.5 July 2014 11
  12. 12.  ORCID provides a free, non-proprietary registry of persistent unique identifiers for researchers, scholars, and analysts  ORCID iDs are embedded in research systems and ORCID provides APIs that enable the interoperable exchange of information between systems  ORCID code is open source and we support community efforts to develop tools and services  ORCID iDs link to other research information identifiers ORCID 5 July 2014 12  ORCID record data marked public by researchers is published annually
