ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a nonproprietary alphanumeric code to uniquely identify scientific and other academic authors and contributors. It provides a persistent identity for humans, similar to that created for content-related entities on digital networks by digital object identifiers (DOIs). WIAS’ Open Access Commission recommends you to register with ORCID.
