ORCID Training

An ORCID is a 16 digit persistent identifier for researchers and contributors.  It’s purpose is to:

(1) disambiguate researchers with like names in any system (e.g. Web of Science, ORO or ORDO)

(2) aid data transfer across systems to stop you re-keying information (e.g. if your ORCID is related to a bunch of publication information in one system simply by adding your ORCID to another system all that information can be automatically pulled across without the need for re-keying).  That’s the idea, anyway! 

Thanks for reading!

 

 

…if you would like to know more – then come along to our re-scheduled training session on 3rd July 10.30-11.30; face to face at Library Seminar Room 1 or online via Adobe Connect.
