ORCID is an independent non-profit organization that provides a persistent identifier – an ORCID iD – that distinguishes you from other researchers and a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your iD. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. Learn more at orcid.org.
How and why we collect ORCID iDs?
Where are ORCID iDs displayed?
To acknowledge that you have used your iD and that it has been authenticated, we display the ORCID iD icon alongside your name on the article page of your submission and on your public user profile.
