Register for an ORCID iD!
An ORCID iD is a free, unique, persistent identifier that you own and control—forever. It distinguishes you from every other researcher across disciplines, borders, and time. You can populate your iD record with your professional information (affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more), and
you can set Emory as a trusted organization in your record so that information about your research can be integrated into Emory’s institutional research management information systems.
Many publishers (e.g., Wiley, Royal Society of Chemistry, Springer Nature, PLOS, etc.) and research funders (NIH, Department of Energy, NASA, etc.) now require researchers to have an ORCID iD, so getting one now puts you ahead of the game! Use your iD to share your information with other systems outside of Emory, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.
