ORCID has been growing steadily since our launch in October. By 27 December, 42,918 researchers had registered for iDs, about a third of them via manuscript submission systems or by linking with other identifiers.

What is ORCID?
At its core, ORCID is a persistent registry of unique and persistent identifiers for researchers. For these identifiers to be effective, the research community needs to know they exist, and see value in using them. Over 37,000 researchers have registered for an ORCID iD. But, to realize the full potential of ORCID, research information systems must embed ORCID iDs and link back with ORCID to synchronize and update research activity data.

We’ve been using the acronym ORCID for a while. Every so often someone asks, what does it stand for? ORCID is short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. (I also like the ring of Open Researcher Community ID, but that is a topic for another blog.)
