ORCiD:Distinguish Yourself

An ORCID® identifier (iD) is a persistent personal ID. Using your ORCID iD is more accurate and secure than a name: many people can have the same name but each ORCID iD is unique. An ORCID iD provides an easy way to distinguish yourself from other people with similar names guaranteeing that you will get credit for your work. For more about ORCID, visit our website
