ORCID is an Open Researcher and Contributor ID that gives a unique, persistent identifier to researchers. It distinguishes you from every other researcher, ensuring you get credit for your research activities and outputs.
ORCID enables a transparent, permanent record of your research and scholarly communication. Researchers with an ORCID are instantly identifiable, and connected with all of their research outputs, including publications, grants and datasets.
UNSW recognises that ORCID is an essential tool for all UNSW researchers. UNSW researchers can sign up for an ORCID ID by logging into ROS, or link an existing ORCID to their ROS profile. As a trusted source, any publications harvested in ROS using your ORCID will be automatically claimed for you.
