ORCiD ID

ORCID ID

ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-based 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 provides a standard unique author identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
  • ORCiD aims to prevent authorship confusion and protect your unique scholarly identity

Scopus Author ID

scopus logo

The Scopus Author Identifier distinguishes between names by assigning each author in Scopus a unique number and grouping together all of the documents written by that author.

Scopus Author Identifier uses an algorithm that matches author names based on their affiliation, address, subject area, source title, dates of publication citations, and co-authors.

Researchers are automatically assigned a Scopus Author ID when they publish in a journal indexed by Scopus.

Search for your Scopus Author ID.

If you have more than one Scopus Author Identifier, you should request to merge the multiple IDs into one entry.
