Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs):
The Open Researcher Community ID (ORCID) is an increasingly recognized persistent digital identifier for researchers.
The unique number assigned to you will allow publishers and aggregators of scholarly literature to distinguish you from researchers with similar names.
ORCIDs are free and take only a few moments to register.
Once you have your unique ORCID identifier, you can create a personal profile page where you can link all of your scholarship to your unique identifier
