Universities and research organizations are integrating ORCID identifiers into repositories, researcher information systems, and campus directories. They are also making it easier for their faculty, researchers, and students to create ORCID iDs.

ORCID is committed to openness and community, and we offer multiple ways to connect, learn, and share:

About ORCID integrations at universities and research institutes

Universities and other research organizations are embedding ORCID identifiers into repositories, electronic theses and dissertations, research information systems, human resources, and more, and many are supporting the adoption of ORCID identifiers by making it easier for their students, faculty, and researchers to create ORCID iDs.

Here are some useful resources:
