Information relating to ORCID Information relating to ORCID

ORCID is a unique, persistent digital identifier that can be used to differentiate yourself and your work from other researchers, even in instances where multiple individuals have the same name or where you may have changed your name over the course of your career. 

As a member of the ORCID consortium, UEA is encouraging all academic staff to register. ORCID can help to ensure that your work is recognised and correctly cited, assist in collecting information for research statistics and improve scholarly communication by enabling transparent connections between researchers. 

ORCID is a not-for-profit organisation, “guided by the principles of privacy and researcher control, and the vision of identifier-enabled research information infrastructure”. For more information, visit or contact
