ORCID IDs provide a unique identifier for each researcher. We encourage UVic faculty and graduate students to apply for an ORCiD to support your manuscript and grant submission activities.

Benefits of ORCID IDs include:

  • distinguishing between authors with the same name
  • attributing publications to a single author despite inconsistent use of first names/initials, name changes, publications in different writing systems, etc.
  • providing stable URLs to authors and lists of his/her research outputs.
