ORCID is the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-proprietary, transparent, mobile, and community-based. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier to distinguish researchers from their peers, automatically linking their professional activities.

ORCID helps with the following problems:​

  • Researchers who worry about getting credit for their research because their name is common or they have publications under multiple aliases
  • Researchers who struggle to keep track of all of their research outputs
  • Researchers who are annoyed by having to enter the same information over and over in various research systems

This introductory session has two aims:

  • To provide a brief introduction to ORCID, and how it is increasingly being used by publishers, funders, professional associations and at the University of Calgary 
  • To provide you with an opportunity to claim your ORCID iD and add research outputs and biographical information using the import wizards and/or manual entry
