ORCID

Open Researcher and Contributors ID provides a persistent digital identifier for researchers

New Requirements

It began in 2016 when a growing list of journals and publishers, including PLoS, Wiley, the American Chemical Society, EMBO Press and others, required authors to have an ORCID number. Soon, starting on January 25, 2020, the National Institutes of Health or NIH will require ORCID ID’s for researchers who are receiving research training, fellowship, education, and career development awards.

  • Additional Instructions for Career Development:
