Need an ORCiD? | Workshop Thursday, June 14, 2-3pm

What is ORCID? Why would you want one?

ORCID provides a persistent digital 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.

This hands-on session will discuss ORCID, how researchers can benefit from having one, and how ORCID connects with other information systems. 

Everyone will have the chance to create their own ORCID and learn the most efficient ways to populate their profile with their publications.
