Creating and Using an ORCID iD at University of Miami
What is ORCID?
  • ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-proprietary, transparent, mobile, and community-based. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier to distinguish you from all other researchers.
What are the benefits? Why should I sign up?
  • You will be distinguished from every other researcher, even researchers who share your same name.
  • Your research outputs and activities will be correctly attributed to you.
  • Your contributions and affiliations will be reliably and easily connected to you.
  • Individuals supported by research training, fellowship, research education, and career development awards from the NIH, AHRQ, and CDC are now required to have an ORCID.
  • Many publishers require ORCID iDs from authors during the publication submission process. These publishers include Frontiers, PLoS, Science and Wiley.
ORCID & Scholarship @Miami
  • In the future, your ORCID will be connected with Scholarship@Miami, the University of Miami's new research profiling system and institutional repository.
