ORCiD stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID.  

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your professional information — affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.

ORCiDs are increasingly used in grant applications, publications and conferences. Locally, you can connect your ORCiD to both oURspace and the Converis system.

If you have questions about ORCiDs, contact your Subject Librarian or our Research and Scholarship Librarian, Cara Bradley.
