ORCID at Oxford (Open Research and Contributor ID)

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.
