ORCID at the EUI


The EUI became institutional supporting member of  ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID in November 2017. ORCID is an international registry and directory of of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars that is open, non-proprietary, transparent, mobile, and community-based.

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

The EUI Library is working to complete the full integration of the ORCID database with the Cadmus, EUI research repository. 

This integration will allow:

  1. EUI members to perform tasks associated with ORCID, such as to create ORCID iDs and/or connect existing ORCID iDs to EUI - Cadmus;
  2. EUI - Cadmus to deposit publications of an author into the author's ORCID record/profile.

A first EUI Guide to ORCiD: Recommendations for EUI members was prepared in October 2017. That guide will be adapted to web format as soon as the integration is completed. 

What is ORCID?

ORCID iD provides a persistent digital identifier to solve problems of name ambiguity and ensure that works are correctly and unambiguously attributed to their creator. ORCID iD can be also used to aggregate information from publisher catalogues, institutional archives, data archives, HR records and funding management systems.

ORCID is a non-profit organization supported by a global community of organizational members, including research organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders in the research ecosystem.
