A lunchtime introduction to ORCID

  • Do you worry about getting credit for your research because you have a common surname?
  • Do you have publications under multiple aliases?
  • Do you struggle to keep track of all of your research outputs?

Regardless of your discipline or place of work, it is critical to your reputation and career that research and scholarly organizations and funders, publishers, scholarly societies, associations, and your fellow researchers and academicians are able to quickly and unambiguously identify and attribute your work – and only your work – to you.

ORCID is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-proprietary, transparent, mobile, and community-based. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other contributor and supports automated linkages among all your professional activities.

With more funders and publishers requiring ORCIDs, this is the time to take full advantage of a unique person identifier that works across systems.

Join us for one of our lunchtime session to learn about signing up for ORCID, connecting it to the University of Birmingham’s PURE system and curating your ORCID record in the long term. Sessions will be hosted:

  • 10th March 2017 12.00 – 13.00, Main Library Training Room
  • 21st March 2017 12.00 –  13.00, Upper West Cluster, Medical School
