Distinguish yourself

An ORCID iD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a unique identifier that connects you to your scholarship and differentiates you from other researchers, facilitating online discovery and recognition of your work. ORCID iDs are persistent and independent of institutional affiliation, ensuring that you stay linked to your research outputs throughout your career.
