An ORCID ID is a persistent identifier that supports your efforts when you change positions, institutions, or even your hame. Your ORCID record enables you to enter information once for reuse multiple times. Because ORCID.org is a non-profit organization, your information is not sold. There is no cost for using ORCID and you control the visibility of your ORCID record. Automatic updates for your new publications can be sent to your ORCID record, making it easier to keep your information current.
