ORCiD Basics[edit | edit source]

ORCiD is comparable to a LinkedIn or professional portfolio for researchers. Not only does it allow you to add your employment, education, etc., this website helps you to get credit for any projects you've worked on, or are currently working on.

In other words, ORCiD is a portfolio where you can link all of your past and present projects to one place. For students who want to get into research, this will come in handy when you apply to future positions and want to show your involvement with research.

Creating an account[edit | edit source]

  1. Go to orcid.org.

    • Note: Your unique link will serve as an identifier for you and your work - similar to a SSN.

Here is Dr. Youngstrom's ORCiD - you can look at this as an example of what yours may look like when you start publishing your own work.
