Over 200 RGU staff and research students have already signed up to get an ORCID profile so far this year. ORCID provides a persistent identifier that can follow an individual throughout their research life, and be attached to publications, outputs and grant applications. Use of ORCID has grown rapidly in the past 2-3 years, and it is now being adopted as a standard by JISC on behalf of over 50 UK universities. Some funders are already insisting on using an ORCID ID for grant applications, so they can link grants with outputs.
- create an ORCID ID for you or help you maintain it
- link your existing ORCID ID with your staff profile and web page
- link your ORCID ID to your work here as a research student and eventually your thesis
