Why get an ORCID?

The benefits of having an ORCID iD are that:


It uniquely identifies you and distinguishes you from other researchers


It connects you to your publications, so you canu se your ORCID record as one list of all your published work, to use in funding, grant, job or tenure applications


You can enhance your ORCID record with your professional information and link to your other identifiers, such as Scopus, ResearcherID or LinkedIn


We can include your iD in your published manuscripts, and the publication lists in your ORCID record will then be automatically updated via Crossref (you will need to grant permission to Crossref in the first instance)


If you referee for us and claim credit via Publons, your ORCID record can also be automatically updated (you will need to grant permission for this in the first instance)


You can now use ORCID to create and log in to your ScholarOne and Publons accounts. See our help guide for further details
