Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a non-profit, community-driven registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCIDs are recognized across all scholarly disciplines and national boundaries, and are being used by an increasing number of publishers, funders, and research organizations. Individuals can register for an ORCID free of charge. For more information on ORCID see:

This program is sponsored by the UNC Libraries Health & Natural Sciences Team.

  • Monday, January 13, 2014,12 - 1 pm, HSL 527 Hello, I’m 0000-0002-6133-2581. As a researcher, you want toensure your work is discoverable and connected to you throughout your career so you can get proper attributionminimize the time you spend entering repetitive data onlineWhat I am going to talk about todayhow ORCID helps with thishow to get and take advantage of your ORCID as an individual researchersome of the ways ORCIDs are currently being integrated into research workflow that researchers are likely to encounter
  • Names may be spelled, abbreviated and presented in multiple formats. It may be rendered in different languages Even in the same language, it may be displayed with different charactersThere may be a variety of abbreviationsThere may be name changes, for instance due to marriageNot only do both computers and people have a hard time knowing when two different spellings are the same person, but they also cannot tell when the same spelling is used by two different people. Case in point: there are 9 faculty members with the first initial “J.” and the last name “Smith” at UNC alone.
  • The ORCID is a 16-digit number like these examples. As you can see from these two ORCID profiles, it doesn’t replace your name, but it can be used as a link between different variants of your name, and to your research profile or ID in different systems, like LinkedIn or Scopus.
  • And you can use it to differentiate two identical names that have different ORCID numbers.
  • ORCIDs work by being used by different systems that connect you and your research outputs and activities:across funders, institutions, societies, publishers, and so on.Some key features:The ID can stay with you your entire career, as you move from institution to institutionIt is not restricted by discipline, research sector,nationality or languageIt can be used for any kinds of works or activitiesThis makes it a useful complement to existing researcher identifiers like ResearcherID or ScopusID (which are just used for publications) and IDs specific to a single university or funder, like your ID in RAMSES or in the NIH system. ORCIDS are an open technology that can link among them.
  • Importantly, ORCIDs are free for individual researchers. The technology is owned by anopen, non-profit, community-driven organization, with >100members (publishers, funders, institutions, societies, repositories, etc). It is the member organizations that provide the revenue to keep ORCID afloat, so it is not just another internet startup selling your personal information for a profit.Organizations become members because it makes it possible for them to take full advantage of integrating their systems with ORCID (via the API). I have served on the board for the past year, in a position specifically reserved for a researcher unaffiliated with a Member organization.
  • Since ORCIDs have only been around for a little over a year, it’s future pervasiveness is not apparent yet to the casual observer, but that is likely to change. Nearly half a million ORCIDs have been registered in the past year, and the pace has picked up since publishers started asking and in some cases requiring ORCIDs in their manuscript submission systems. US and China have highest numbers to date, but used all over the world: Europe, Brazil, etc.
  • In the future, it is my hope that research institutions will create ORCIDs for employees that don’t already have one. You would then go and claim that ID and start using it. For now, you as a researcher register for an ID yourself. It is a very simple process, and as a I said, is totally free to you. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to disambiguate you from other researchers, e.g. variant names, institutional history, You can also use your profile to showcase your work in a way that is portable across institutions, which is particularly valuable for grad students, postdocs.
  • You control what information is publicly shared. Even when an employer sets up your ORCID record, upon claim you maintain sole control privacy settings.Privacy can even be controlled at the item level.The 3 privacy levels arePublic: Data which are completely viewable and open for public use (the default)Limited Access: Data which are only viewable by parties you (or someone you designate) selectPrivate: Data which are not viewable by third parties via the registry
  • You can connect your ORCID iD to your works. For articles and data, you can import them from third party databases, like Scopus, CrossRef, and DataCite with user-friendly import tools. You can also add works individually. There is actually a wide variety of other types of work types that ORCID allow you to link to your profile, albeit manually, including books, patents, posters, artistic performances, lectures and speeches, etc. [These come from the CASRAI classification]
  • If you select an individual import wizard, you can link your other ID (in this case, ResearcherID) to your ORCID, import the works that you agree our yours, and (where applicable) control what access that third party has to your ORCID in the future.
  • And here is my completed profile page, with some basic profile info, links to other IDS, lists of works. There is private information not shared on this public page, such as email addresses. Notice also the ideas page if there are things you would like to see or do with it – you can vote or comment on other people’s ideas, too, and get notified when the features you care about are released.
  • Let’s take a look at some examples of systems that are using ORCIDs today
  • The NIH developed an application called SciENcv to facilitate sharing of biosketch information for grant/fellowship applications between federal funding agencies in the US. It asks for a link to your ORCID profile.
  • Nature Publishing Group is now asking authors to link ORCID to their account in NPG’s manuscript submission system. NPG will soon be publishing ORCIDsin papers and reporting ORCIDs in the metadata that gets shared with indexing and discovery services. This is in the works at many of the major publishers, and so it is something researchers are increasingly likely to encounter.
  • It’s not just for grants and publications. There is now an importer for DataCite, which is a DOI registrar used by many disciplinary and institutional repositories such as Dryad and Figshare. So your ORCID profile can be easily linked to many other kinds of digital outputs that you may be distributing on the web, be it data, posters, slide presentations, etc.
  • Institutions have begun to use ORCIDs in their own systems, and Boston University is one of the first. Data can be used internally, for example in PeopleSoft, and displayed on public researcher profile pages, as in this example. Users at BU can also pull data from their local system into their ORCID records. If you’d like to see a similar integration at UNC with RAMSES or other systems, let the Office of Sponsored Research know. A university can become a member, and create ORCIDs for all the researchers employed at the institution; researchers could then just claim the ID at start using it more broadly.
  • Even if your institution does not integrate with ORCID yet, it’s easy to share your ORCID on your personal profile pages.

    • 7. Nearly half a million ORCIDs registered to date
    • 8. Getting your ORCID
    • 9. Distinguish yourself
    • 10. Privacy control You determine what, how, and with whom the information in your ORCID record is shared.
    • 11. 2. Add your info: import works • Use ORCID import wizards to import your works into your ORCID record. • This import process populates your record and attaches your ORCID iD to the works you claim.
    • 12. Linking to ORCID from ResearcherID Create an ORCID iD or associate existing ORCID iD with ResearcherID Exchange profile and/or publication data between ORCID and ResearcherID
    • 13. Using your ORCID
    • 14. In grant applications Link grant application to ORCID identifier Import information from ORCID record Funders like the NIH and Wellcome Trust are now requesting ORCIDs during grant submission.
    • 15. In publications Link to your ORCID when submitting a manuscript
    • 16. Claim other kinds of works that you have shared in disciplinary repositories Tie your ORCID to your repository account(s) to get credit for other works, such as data, posters, slides, software. These can be imported into your profile using the DataCite Import tool.
    • 17. You can use ORCIDs internally at some institutions
    • 18. You are always free to use your ORCID as part of your personal profile
    • 19. Summary • Your ORCID can be used to link nearly all your works to you, no matter what name you use or how similar your name is to others • It can help reduce the need to enter the same profile information into multiple systems and keep it updated • You control your profile information, what information you wish to share, and what organizations you trust to access and modify it • Your ORCID is portable across systems and institutions, through your career, and can be used as a switchboard that links to more specialized IDs • It’s free for researchers and supported by an open communitydriven non-profit
