The ORCID identifier is increasingly being used by publishers and other intitutions to identify researchers and measure their individual scientific achievement. Several publishers require authors to use an ORCID id when they want to publish.


ORCID is an effort of the scholarly publishing community to create unique identifiers for scientists and let them create a complete overview of their scientific career including publication list and use it to identify themselves to publishers and funders.
