Your Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID) is a persistent digital identifier to connect you to your research output. ORCID is a non-profit initiative driven by a global community of research institutions and agencies, publishers, funding bodies, and professional associations. It provides an online profile to link to your other professional profiles, accurate author identification and publication attribution, full integration with the ARC RMS (which simplifies the grant application process), and is supported my many publishers.
UTAS researchers are expected to create and maintain an ORCID and add it to their WARP Profile.
To ensure your ORCID is visible, accept the default privacy settings (Who can see this? 'Everyone'). Remember that the more public content you include in your account, the less you need to repeat it elsewhere and the easier it will be for others to identify you and your research.
You can add your UTAS staff profile page, Google Scholar Citation, Twitter, and LinkedIn URLs.
You can also add your ORCID to your other Researcher Identifiers and profiles (e.g. Scopus, Web of Science - ResearcherID, and Google Scholar Citations Profile Homepage).
There are a many ways to add publications to your ORCID profile:
