ORCID: ORCiD @ VT

Learn about the ORCID identifier for researchers and how it's integrated with services at Virginia Tech

What Is ORCiD?

ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier) is a 16-digit number that uniquely and persistently identifies a scholarly researcher (for example,  http://orcid.org/0000-0001-9718-6515).

ORCiD is a not-for-profit organization, and its work is open, transparent, and non-proprietary. ORCiD adheres to principles of privacy and researcher control.

Virginia Tech researchers are encouraged to register for an ORCiD identifier (it's quick and there's no cost), in order to:

  • ensure that your work is discoverable and connected to you throughout your career;
  • minimize the time you spend entering repetitive data; and
  • eliminate name ambiguity, distinguishing you from other researchers and ensuring proper attribution.

Funders and journal publishers are increasingly requiring that researchers have an ORCiD, and many more encourage its use. Learn more about ORCiD.
