ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier to distinguish YOU from all other researchers, linking all of your professional activities. For example:
Over time, this collaborative effort will reduce redundent entry of biographical and bibliographical data into multiple systems. Your ORCID iD will belong to you throughout your scholarly career as a persistent identifier to distinguish you from other researchers and ensure consistent, reliable, attribution of your work.
To get started with ORCID you can claim your free ORCID iD by clicking the "Create or Connect your ORCID iD" button on your Scholar@UC account details page (or head over to orcid.org/register).
The Scholar@UC implentation of ORCID supports connecting to and displaying ORCID iDs, but does not support the ability to sign-in to Scholar with an ORCID iD
