You may be wondering why researchers are asked for their ORCID sign-in details to add a new connection to their record. There are two reasons: principle (we believe researchers should always be in control of their data) and practical (we want to provide transparency and trust for all the connections ORCID helps to make). This blog post sets out how this works, why it's important, and how it helps you.
