ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier) is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID IDs distinguish individuals with common names and are not affected by name changes, cultural differences in name order, inconsistent abbreviations, or the use of different alphabets.
ORCID iDs are used by publishers, funders, associations and other organizations to make sure your work is correctly attributed to you, to unambiguously differentiate you from other scholars with the same name, and to streamline workflows such as submitting and reviewing journal articles, applying for funding, and more:
For additional information about ORCID, see "Ten Things You Need to Know" for an overview.
Go to: https://orcid.org/register
Complete the information on the form (name, e-mail, set a password).
Determine the default level of privacy you want.
Un-select notification e-mail check boxes according to your preference.
Click the "Register" button.
Note: Select "Everyone" for easy set-up with other services like SciENcv.
For detailed information about all aspects of your ORCID profile, use the documentation provided by ORCID.
Remember: Everything you add here has privacy settings. Information visible to everyone will be able to integrate into systems you designate as "trusted" (e.g. SciENcv).
Once you have a bibliography of your own works saved in a citation manager, you can export all of them in a format the ORCID understands: BibTeX. Each citation manager may use slightly different language, but somewhere it will say "Export" (e.g. RefWorks says "Share" and when you click that you have an export option). From the export menu, you select BibTeX as the file format to save.
