A Part of the Solution

As a founding member of the Open Researcher and Contributor Identity (ORCID) and the provider of its underlying technology, we have long recognized the need for accurate attribution in research and are uniquely positioned to help researchers, institutions, publishers and funding organizations leverage ORCIDs across the scholarly workflow. ORCID is a non-profit effort to address confusion and ambiguity created by similar author names.
