ORCID: academic author iD

The EUI became institutional supporting member of  ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID in November 2017. ORCID is a non-profit organization supported by a global community of organizational members, including researORCID_Member_Webch organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders in the research ecosystem.

ORCiD, the Open Researcher and Contributor iD, is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-proprietary, transparent, mobile, and community-based.

During Autumn/Winter 2017 the EUI will integrate Cadmus, EUI research repository with ORCID.

For this reason a new EUI Guide to ORCiD: Recommendations for EUI members has been prepared. Please do consult it.

ORCiD ensures authors to get credit for all their work. The ORCiD iD will belong to the author throughout the scholarly career as a persistent identifier to distinguish the author from other researchers. To get started:

  1. Claim the free ORCiD iD at http://orcid.org/register
  2. Import the research outputs and add biographical information to ORCID
  3. Use the ORCID when you apply for grants, submit publications, or share CV

Cadmus content: ownership and copyright

Adding a publication to Cadmus does not change the ownership or copyright of the publication. A bibliographical entry in Cadmus records the EUI’s support of the research that led to the publication and does not imply any EUI ownership of the publication.

The copyright of any full-text made available on Cadmus remains with the original copyright owner(s). Placing full-text on Cadmus can only be carried out with the permission of the copyright owner(s) and of any other parties such as co-authors and publishers who have rights in the publication.

Documents in Cadmus may be downloaded only for personal research purposes. Any additional reproduction for other purposes, whether in hard copies or electronically, requires the consent of the author(s), editor(s).

If cited or quoted, reference should be made to the full name of the author(s), editor(s), the title, the working paper, or other series, the year and the publisher.
