ORCID iDs - Resolving ambiguity in authorship and helping assign credit

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 - 16:00

ORCID provides persistent identifiers that distinguish researchers from one another.  The ORCID registry contains links from these identifiers to others, including articles, data, education, funding, employment, peer reviews and more.  Through automated workflows and interoperation with other systems this provides a clearer picture of how research is generated and enables authors to get the credit they deserve for all their academic outputs.
