Get full credit for all your research with an ORCiD ID
Paul Banks, Head of Library Planning, explains the importance of the ORCiD ID and how Library Services can help you to set one up.
"The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCiD for short) is a unique, permanent numeric identifier widely adopted by individual academic researchers. The ID distinguishes you from other academic researchers and authors with the same name and helps to ensure that you retain recognition and credit for all of your work."
"Having an ORCiD ID is strongly advisable for many reasons. Not only will save you time in the manuscript and grant submissions but the ORCiD ID is now requested by over 3,000 journals and are soon to become a mandatory part of the grant application processes of major funders such as Research Council UK and Higher Education Funding Council, England."
