What Is ORCID?

ORCID--or Open Researcher and Contributor Identifiers--are unique IDs that you can use as a researcher to identify your academic work. The IDs help funders, publishers, scholarly societies, and other researchers to quickly find and distinguish your work from materials created by other researchers with similar names. ORCIDs are being used increasingly by publishers ranging from the Royal Society to PLOS, the American Geophysical Union, IEEE, and Wiley. 

To get started with ORCID, follow these three steps:

1.) Get an ORCID for free at https://orcid.org/register. Use your TTU email to register.

2.) Add your scholarly works: Once you’ve created your ORCID ID, you can add works to your record, set up automatic updates, or delegate management of your account to someone else.

3.) Use your ORCID ID: Include your ORCID ID on your webpage, when you submit publications, on grant applications, and in other research workflows to ensure that you get credit for your work.
