OPEN RESEARCHER & CONTRIBUTOR ID- ORCID
An ORCID looks like this: 0000-0002-1346-1530
The purpose of ORCID is to create a global registry with unique researcher identifiers in order to identify researchers for research organizations, publishers, funders, universities and other stakeholders.
The advantages of an international researcher ID are:
- One ID which follows you when changing universities or names
- Facilitation of communication between author and publisher
- Facilitation of communication between researcher and funders when applying for grants and reporting a project
ORCID is available with a Creative Common license which means that other companies and service providers can use the information without asking permission. This is different from ResearcherID where all the information is owned by Thomson Reuters and can’t be used by others.
TO OPTIMIZE YOUR ORCID:
- Fill in Employment: University West
- Link all your information from databases such as Scopus, Web of Science and PubMed. When you are logged in to your ORCID account, choose Add Works /Search & link and then scroll down the list to ResearcherID, PubMed or Scopus and allow the connection. If you need more help with the procedure, use the manual down below.
DiVA and ORCID
When filling out the form on our website, we have a requirement that you must enter an ORCID ID.
You can also enter your ORCID when registering or updating a publication manually. There is a special field for ORCID, with links to information and the creation of the ID.
The library staff would appreciate to be informed if you register for an ORCID, in order to complement your publications already registered in DiVA.
Link your information
To link your information from databases such as Scopus, Web of Science and PubMed to your ORCID-id after logging in to your ORCID, choose Add Works /Search & link and choose source of information.
