ORCID (orcid.org) provides unique IDs for researchers. ORCID IDs help to distinguish between researchers with similar names and help ensure that work is correctly attributed. ORCID is a non-profit initiative supported by publishers and funders, and anyone can register for a free ORCID ID. Find out more at orcid.org.
ORCID IDs can be assigned to person records in Archie, using the 'Connect to ORCID' link in the 'General' tab. This will link the person record with their ORCID ID. In future, ORCID IDs will be displayed with author information for published Cochrane Reviews in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews on the Cochrane Library.
