ORCiD ensures that you get credit for the articles you write. It does this by creating a digital identifier (the ORCiD ID) to distinguish you from other researchers and help digital systems make the connection between you and your work.

ORCiD is integrated into major databases like Hein Online and Web of Science, so it’s in your interest to create an ORCiD ID and make sure that your scholarship is reliably attributed to you.
