  5. 5. What is ORCID? • ORCID iD is a 16-digit unique identifier • Distinguishes you from every other researcher • Connects you to your work and affiliations across time, disciplines, and borders • ORCID is an international, interdisciplinary, open, non-proprietary, and not-for- profit organization • You can link your ORCID iD to other identifiers, e.g. Scopus Author ID
  6. 6. Why? • Connecting researchers with their professional activities can be tricky! • Format of names: Victoria Allan, Viki Allan, V Allan, VJ Allan • Researchers with the same name • Names can change • Transliteration is difficult
  7. 7. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that can distinguish you from other researchers
  8. 8. •Submitting a manuscript •Applying for a grant •Reporting to funders Sign in where you see the iD logo, for example:

  11. 11. Importing works into your ORCiD account • Directly import your work from databases rather than you having to type it all in • Log into your ORCID account: • Go to Works section, +Add works, Search and Link • Select a database that matches your geographic or subject areas • Click on Authorise • You can then find your work and import it • Import Bibtex from Symplectic
  12. 12. Trusted organisations Trusted organisations are those to which you have granted permission to interact with your iD and record, e.g. when submitting a manuscript or grant application. You decide whether to grant this access and you may revoke it at any time – • Any system you have authorised via ORCID (e.g. Symplectic) • Read items on your ORCID record that are set to be visible to everyone or just to trusted parties
