ORCID IDs… Have You Got Yours Yet?

ORCIDORCID ID’s provide unique and persistent identifiers to researchers (much like a DOI for a journal article). Many funders—including the Wellcome Trust UK—now require ORCID IDs as part of the grant proposal process.

Wiley recently announced that from November 28th, “more than 500 Wiley journals using ScholarOne Manuscripts will require the submitting author (only) to provide an ORCID identifier (iD) when submitting a manuscript”1. This follows in the steps of other publishers such as IEEE and Hindawi that have required an ORCID Id since July 2016. Many other publishers have also introduced this requirement.

So how do you get an ORCID? The good news is that it is really easy – and takes no more than thirty seconds to register.

Once you have your ORCID ID you should include this when you submit publications and when you apply for grants.
