What is ORCID?

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a global, not-for-profit organization that provides a unique, persistent identifier (the ORCID iD) that establishes a trustworthy connection between the researcher, their work, and their institutional affiliations; makes it easier for others to cite and correctly attribute the researcher’s work; and helps to eliminate confusion over name similarities. Publishers, funders, and professional associations are increasingly requiring an ORCID iD at manuscript submission, proposal application, and membership renewal.

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is an ORCID member organization, and Illinois Experts can be linked as a “trusted organization” to your ORCID record. Learn more below and in our ORCID library guide.
