Benefits of ORCID

Why have an ORCID iD?

  • Easy to register and use
  • Distinguishes your name and disambiguates you from other researchers, ensuring your research is properly credited
  • Increases visibility by compiling all your research output in one place
  • Saves time by reducing manual data entry through automatic harvesting
  • Promotes your research and facilitates collaboration across borders, institutions and disciplines
  • Streamlines research workflow, such as manuscript and grant submissions
  • Empowers you to self-manage your personal privacy while keeping your work publicly available
  • Meets requirements for publications and grants: see ORCID in publications and ORCID Funders policies. Applications made through the Concordia Research Administration Database (ConRAD) also require ORCID.
  • Moves with you: research data stays with you across organizations and national boundaries
  • Interdisciplinary: adapts to a range of scholarly outputs: see ORCID worktypes
  • Integrates with a range of systems/platforms: once they're linked, you can push information back and forth between services
