Getting an ORCID ID is an easy way to distinguish yourself from other scholars. ORCID ID's are persistent identifiers that can be used to establish your unique identity. For example, if you share a name with other researchers, an ORCID ID can help distinguish your work from theirs. Or, if your changed your name mid-career, an ORCID ID can help make sure that citations to your work are being properly tracked.
