Faculty workshop: ORCID ID, Author Identifier, Dec. 8

ORCID logoORCID ID: Author Identifier for Grants, Publication, and Reviewing (Express Workshop: 30 minutes)
Dec. 8, 10-10:30 AM
ORCID IDs are author identifiers. They are especially helpful to authors with names that are more common but they have other benefits including speedier registration in systems for submitting articles, reviewing, and grant applications. Grantees who use their ORCID when applying for a grant help to assure that funders connect your funding program to your scholarship. ORCID also helps potential funders to efficiently review your publications.
