For research funders, ORCID can unambiguously link researchers to their research and the funding programmes that provided support. Understanding the impact of funding is a vital input into future funding strategy and funding programme design.
For research organizations—universities, research companies, national laboratories, member societies—ORCID can reduce the time-consuming process of maintaining up-to-date records, and provides a validation step with updates from trusted sources.
For publishers, ORCID can streamline the manuscript submission process, improve the management of author and reviewer databases, and improve the accuracy of name-based article repository searches.
ORCID encourages third parties to develop applications that interact with and enhance the utility of the ORCID Registry. We provide tools, use cases, documentation, examples, and open-source code to support your integration efforts.
