What is ORCID?

ORCID provides a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.  An ORCID iD is a persistent unique identifier that follows an individual throughout their career, and looks something like “0000-0003-0423-208X.”

Visit the ORCID website for additional information.

Yale University is a member of ORCID.
