ORCID & ResearcherIDs

In order to take into account of Author name variation or common author names. It is highly recommended that authors create a ResearcherID or an ORCID, which is a unique researcher identifier which you can use in grant, journal, and book submissions. Now more than ever funding agencies as well as publishers are requiring authors to include their ORCID in the submission process.  

ResearcherID information integrates with Web of Science and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account.

Also, ORCID works with CrossrefDataCite, and SciENcv to automatically update your ORCID record, once you authorize this process.
