Did you know that ORCID® is the most widely used method for researchers to assert their online identity?
A new report from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) notes that ORCID “has become a de facto standard” in higher education and government sectors, with more than 60 per cent of researchers in those fields reporting using an ORCID iD to digitally identify their research.
ORCID – Open Researcher and Contributor ID – is what’s called a researcher identifier: a unique numeric identifier that persists over time. Your ORCID id distinguishes you from other researchers and compiles a record in one spot that supports all of your professional activities – including career development, promotion and tenure processes and research funding applications.
The Brock University Library supports the use of ORCID and now offers a step-by-step tutorial which will help you sign up for this important research tool.
