Step 1Create your ORCID iD and record

Register for an ORCID iD, a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers and scholars. Select "Access through your institution" to sign in with your Stanford credentials.

Step 2Share your ORCID record

Set the visibility of your ORCID record. Setting the visibility to "everyone" will help employers, funders, publishers, and collaborators identify your work.


Step 3Connect Stanford and your ORCID

Authorize Stanford to read and write to your ORCID record, which will mean less work to keep your professional profiles in sync and up-to-date.
