Researchers recognise the challenges associated with getting credit for their work. The University of Queensland is committed to providing scholars with the best methods available to identify and track the work they do. ORCID - the Open Researcher and Contributor ID - is a practical, digital means of reliably connecting you with your research activity and distinguishing you within the global research community.
As ORCID is increasingly integrated into research systems and workflows here at UQ and abroad, your ORCID iD will become essential - you will use it when submitting manuscripts for publication, making grant proposals to funding bodies, uploading datasets to an archive, registering for research conference and joining professional associations. Via ORCID, your research contributions will become more connected and discoverable, and tracking your research activity will become easier for you, your collaborators and your institution.
We encourage all members of the UQ research community to create and use their ORCID iD. Registering your ORCID iD is quick, easy and free. Linking your ORCID iD to UQ systems is essential. For assistance in setting up your ORCID iD be sure to contact your Liaison Librarian.
