Managing your unique author identifier with ORCID

Researchers face the ongoing challenge of distinguishing their research activities from those of others with similar names. They need to be able to easily and uniquely attach their identity to research objects such as datasets, equipment, articles, media stories, citations, experiments, patents, and notebooks. They have to interact with an increasing number and diversity of research information systems. Entering data over and over again can be time-consuming, and often frustrating. ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. This workshop will explain what ORCID is, how to register and populate your profiles.

Target audience: Academic staff, researchers and postgraduate students


 Participants will learn in this hands-on session:

  • What is the benefits of having an unique author iD with ORCID

  • The benefits of having University membership to ORCID

  • How to connect your profile with the ORCID university integration

  • How to populate your iD’s with your works

  • How to connect records to ORCID with ResearcherID and Scopus

  • Any other new developments (ORCID is growing rapidly and new services become available regularly)
