Benefits of ORCID

  • Save time on manuscript submissions and grant applications.

  • Make your work more discoverable.
  • You have complete control over your record and its visibility.

Note: The interfaces shown in ORCID's tutorial videos is a little different from their current version. ORCID is working on updating their videos, but most features are unchanged. Please don't hesitate to contact either a librarian or ORCID for technical support.
