ORCID is a unique 16 digit researcher ID that you keep throughout your life.
Members of Oxford University may now register for an ORCID here: https://register.it.ox.ac.uk/self/orcid (log in with Single Sign On)
If you have an existing ORCID, you may also authenticate your membership of Oxford University at the link above.
Why register for ORCID?
- Disambiguation – stop being confused with researchers with the same surname and initial as you!
- You can add your papers (& other works) to your profile, collating all your research in one place. There are several automatic tools to import your works from other sources e.g. SCOPUS.
- ORCID is for life – if you move to a different institution, you take your ORCID with you.
- Research funding bodies are integrating ORCID into their application processes.
