ORCID (Open Research Community ID)

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.

RGU can:

  • 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

Contact Jane Williams, (j.williams6@rgu.ac.uk) Research Data Management Project Officer for more help and advice.
