ORCID (pronounced ORKID or ORK ID) is a great solution for differentiating authors and connecting them to all of their own research. As a globally supported non-profit organization, it maintains a registry of unique and persistent identifiers for authors that may be used across databases and other places where research is found.MORE

This is where ORCID comes in.
ORCID provides a way to differentiate authors. There are countless people with the same last names working in similar research areas. If everyone had an ORCID, systems would be able to distinguish...MORE
