A brief overview of the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributer ID) will be provided while librarians will be around to answer questions and help you get your own unique ORCiD iD.
It’s fast and free! Laptops will be available or bring your own.
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a non-profit, platform agnostic registry of unique author identifiers. Many publishers, funders and academic institutions have already adopted ORCID and may be requiring its use in the near future.
Having an ORCID iD:
- Makes your work discoverable by others
- Connects your research to you throughout your career, no matter how your name appears in publication
- Distinguishes you from other researchers with similar names
- Minimizes the time you spend filling out forms when submitting research or applying for grants
- Is being required by major journal publishers and funders, like the NIH
See http://libguides.fiu.edu/ORCID for more information, and see you there!
