Publishers starting to require ORCID

If you haven’t heard of an ORCID iD, you might soon. ORCID creates and maintains a registry of unique identifiers for researchers, and they announced this week that a group of seven publishers will begin requiring authors to use an ORCID identifier (iD) during the publication process. Read ORCID’s announcement.

These publishers include:

  • The American Geophysical Union (AGU)
  • eLife
  • EMBO
  • Hindawi
  • the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
  • Public Library of Science (PLOS)
  • The Royal Society

  • keep track of and report your work with funders, publishers, and institutions
  • make your data available for use in repositories such as the developing Dartmouth Academic Commons
