All ORCID websites, including the Registry (Public and Member APIs and the user interface), orcid.org and members.orcid.org are now back online - if you experience any unexpected issues please report them to [email protected] Thank you for your patience while we upgraded our hardware.

From 2013 - 2017, ORCID outreach activities were supported by a diverse cadre of energetic institutional and individual Ambassadors who encouraged the adoption of ORCID identifiers locally and globally. From 2018, with a much larger network of supporters, staff, and members we have ended our Ambassador program and moved instead to a region- and sector-based community of practice approach, driven by our network of partners and consortia.

We are extremely grateful to our past Ambassadors, listed below, for their hard work, advocacy, and support.
