Join Nicky Agate (Penn Libraries) and Lisa Nichols (Office of Research Services) as they discuss the advantages of getting an ORCID for research visibility, getting credit for a broad range of work, and reducing the amount of time you spend filling out forms!

Spend more time conducting your research and less time on administration! ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a free, unique, persistent identifier for students, postdocs and faculty conducting research. Your ORCID iD: 

  • Reliably connects you with your research contributions and affiliations, regardless of whether you change jobs, your name, or your field of research
  • Ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you and makes them more discoverable to others
  • Reduces data entry:
    • Research funders and publishers are integrating ORCIDs with their electronic systems allowing manuscript submission and grant application forms to be pre-populated with your ORCID information (e.g., SciENcv)  
    • Trusted organizations (e.g., NIH and Penn) can add grant and other information to your record if you permit it
