ORCID

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a non-profit, platform agnostic registry of unique author identifiers.  Some of the world's largest publishers, funders, and institutions have adopted ORCID. Publishers are increasingly collecting or requiring ORCID IDs with manuscript submission, and those with their own author identifiers are integrating and exchanging ORCIDs to populate researcher profiles. The Libraries have launched the ORCID Initiative @ CMU to help CMU researchers acquire an ORCID ID if they don't already have one, and to link CMU researcher ORCID IDs with their Andrew IDs in Carnegie Mellon's identity management system.
