ORCiD: How and Why to include?


As an author, you must have due credit to your work. Two or more persons can have same name; so, how would you identify the person who has really done the research and published an article? To tackle this situation, ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) was first announced in 2009 to uniquely identify the persons involved in scholarly research to be published by Scientific Journal Publishers.

ORCiD is a non-proprietary transparent alphanumeric code; that is, it has both letters and numbers. Your ORCiD will be a 16-digit identifier; for example, Dr YZ may have an ORCiD as https://orcid.org/0000-0002-9081-595X.

ORCiD is integrated in all your research activity including your articles in any journal. An ORCiD is a digital identifier used to distinguish one author from another; you may have common names, but you will have unique ORCiD; this ensures that you get credit for your work. If a person changes name after marriage or divorce or for any other reason, he/she can still be identified by ORCiD. Over 700 organizations including publishers, research communities, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders have integrated ORCiD.

Advanced Research Publications publishes ORCiD with every article in all journals (subscription based technology or peer reviewed and open access medical journals).  This helps readers see your other research publications as well.

  • ORCiD improves discoverability of your research outputs. Several platforms have included ORCiD as a search term to enhance search results.
  • You have complete control over your ORCiD record – you can create your own iD, decide what to connect to it, who you allow to read and/or update their record, and which information is made publicly available or kept completely private.
  • Privacy of your data is maintained. Data is not sold.
  • You decide how your data is used or shared.
  • ORCiD is transparent, open, international, community-based, and multi-disciplinary. It supports multiple languages and character sets.
  • Not only researchers and writers, but people across diverse disciplines such as movies can also use ORCiD to their advantage with no restrictions of national boundaries.

Your ORCiD will remove ambiguity and support indexing, search, publication tracking, and so on. Advanced Research Publications has long supported the use of ORCiD. Your ORCiD is published in the first page of your article. All our journals publishing primarily original research mandate ORCiD iDs for all corresponding authors; this is published on the final article to promote discoverability and credit. Co-authors and reviewers are strongly encouraged to also connect their records to ORCiD.
