ORCID – Open Researcher and Contributor ID


In the registration form of our seminar we ask you to enter your ORCID , if you have one. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an author identifier. You can use ORCID to claim your publications: articles in scholarly journals, for example found in Scopus or Web of Science, books, datasets, and many other types of work. You have to register yourself to get an ORCID – on www.orcid.org. We strongly recommend you to create an ORCID!

ImpactStory listed 10 things you need to know about ORCID right now.

The University Library has made a manual on how to create your ORCID and how to claim your publications. You can download it here.
