In observation of Open Access Week (Oct. 24-30), the UC Merced Library encourages all campus researchers — faculty and staff members and students — to take a minute to visit the ORCID Inc. website and sign up for a free ORCID identifier.
In a world where tens of thousands of scholars may share the same name, a name alone is not enough to authoritatively connect scholars to their work. Instead, scholars need a unique numerical ORCID identifier to ensure that they are authoritatively and consistently linked to their scholarly work, accomplishments and awards. In addition, the many grant funders and more than 1,000 journals that have integrated ORCID identifiers into their submission and publication systems now require ORCID identifiers of applicants and authors.
Don’t let your articles, book chapters, inventions, dissertation, grant applications, or other work get lost in the crowd. Get your free ORCID identifier today.
