ORCID provides persistent digital identifiers that distinguish researchers from each other. By registering and using an ORCID ID you can easily distinguish yourself and assure that your work is attributed only to yourself.
By using ORCID you can ensure that all your research activities and outputs are easily discoverable.
ORCID is indexed by Google Scholar, and you can also link it to the author systems used in key databases like Web of Science and Scopus
An ORCID ID can reduce repetitive data entry. As ORCID is increasingly implemented into other systems the exchange of profile or publication data is being better facilitated.
