The ORCiD registration service provided by the Library will help
EdUHK academic colleagues to register / manage their ORCiDs.
By pressing the Register Now button below, EdUHK academic
colleagues can upload their research outputs from the Library's
EdUHK Research Repository directly to ORCiD and create a new
ORCiD iD during the process if they do not already have an ORCiD iD.
What is ORCiD?
ORCiD stands for Open Research and Contributor iD and it is a free
global registry of researchers. ORCiD iD is designed as
a persistent digital identifier to distinguish researchers from one another.
Through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and
grant submission, it also supports automated linkages ensuring that researchers'
professional activities could be accurately reflected and recognized.
Many major academic publishers have already participated in ORCiD, including
Nature, Springer, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier (provider of
Scopus ID), Thomson Reuter (provider of Researcher ID), Wiley-Blackwell,
Sage, OUP, American Psychological Association, IEEE, PLOS, etc.
As at January 2016, over 1.85 million researchers worldwide have
registered for their ORCiD IDs and enjoy the following benefits of ORCiD:
ORCiD handles name ambiguity by collocating the researcher's
different name formats (English names, Chinese names, initials,
full names, etc.), and thus increase the researcher's
visibility within the research community
ORCiD allows auto-updating and sharing of the researcher's information
and research outputs among different systems and platforms
ORCiD will work as the researcher's lifelong portfolio and will stay
throughout the researcher's career
ORCiD allows the researcher to meet new requirements of publishers and
funding agencies, as more and more of them will be asking for
ORCiD iD when the research submits the works for publication
or grant applications
