The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) enables you to clearly identify your publications, distinguishing your works from other people with similar names.  Duke is making it even easier to obtain an ORCID ID

  • Register or link to your ORCID ID through the OIT Account Self-Service Portal
  • Select “Register your ORCID iD” or CREATE one!
  • Authorize ORCID to share your ID with Duke! 

Your ORCID ID is now part of your Duke Directory listing and Scholars@Duke information!  At the ORCID site, you can also search for and identify the publications that are yours! Find more information on the many ways you may use ORCID, including linking it to your Scopus record, in this newsletter article.
