ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.
ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and its cooperation with other identifier systems.
An ORCID iD is an alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies an academic author.
It is a 16-digit code, in the format: 0000-0000-0000-0000.
