ORCID outreach activities are supported by a diverse cadre of energetic institutional and individual Ambassadors who encourage the adoption of ORCID identifiers locally and globally. ORCID Ambassadors hail from over twenty countries and include organizations, researchers, faculty and university administration, librarians, funders, and association and publishing professionals.

ORCID Ambassadors actively listen to the research and scholarly community.  ORCID provides resources and information to support their outreach efforts, such as

  • Organizing and leading ORCID presentations at conferences and at their own institutions
  • Creating buzz by posting ORCID information on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media sites
  • Posting flyers and sharing information on listservs
  • Displaying their ORCID iDs in their email signature, CV, and Web site
  • Educating friends and colleagues about ORCID through informal conversations
  • Providing ORCID and other Ambassadors with community feedback
  • Encouraging their organization or nation to become a member and embed ORCID identifiers in research workflows
  • Sharing information about their institution’s ORCID integration with the community
