Publishers require ORCID

Major publishers such as American Chemical Society, IEEE, PLOS, Royal Society and many others have committed to requiring ORCID iDs in the publishing process and signed the Open Letter Requiring ORCID in Publication Workflows.

For the publishers, requiring ORCID for their authors has the following benefits:

  • Ensure authors are accurately identified and acknowledged
  • Facilitate disambiguation of authors across disciplines and affiliations
  • Simplify manuscript submission
  • Automatically update author’s ORCID record with metadata on accepted manuscripts
  • Improve author search across publications and platforms
  • Facilitate the creation and maintenance of author and reviewer profiles
