Research metrics and publishing: ORCID


An ORCID is a unique identifier that identifies you and your work.

To get credit for all of your research outputs they must be correctly attributed to you. ORCID overcomes the challenges presented by name changes during a career, differences in publisher formatting of names, or researchers having the same or similar names.

ORCID is an internationally recognised, free Identifier that ties all of your research outputs to YOU regardless of institutional affiliation, stage of career or name variants used.

How to create an ORCID identifier

Set up a free, permanent, unique ORCiD identifier. Your ORCiD ID can easily link with other researcher ID schemes.

You can also create an ORCID through the link provided on your personal profile in Pure.
Adding an ORCID will increase the accuracy of the harvest of research outputs from Scopus into Pure.

If you have linked your personal profile in Pure with your ORCID, updates to your outputs in Pure can be automatically pushed to ORCID.
