What is ORCID?
ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. An ORCID iD is a unique, persistent identifier assigned to an individual researcher which disambiguates them from other researchers (i.e. 0000-0002-7256-0127).
This ID ensures that the author's research contributions — publications, grants, data sets, performances, and more — are correctly attributed.
It is a free, unique, digital research identifier used to associate your work with you. Unlike other research identifiers, ORCID is open source, open access, and non-profit. It also easily links to other IDs and their metrics.
Concordia University is a member of the national ORCID-CA Consortium coordinated by the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN). The University strongly supports the adoption and use of ORCID by members of the Concordia community.
