ORCID: Getting Started

ORCID: Connecting Research and Researchers

Why ORCID?

ORCID logo


ORCID provides an independent identifier that links you to your professional work!

Publishers, funders and other organizations are increasingly adopting or supporting ORCID as a key tool to organize research and information.

How ORCID Promotes Your Scholarship

  • ORCID (Open Research and Contributor ID) provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that distinguishes each researcher from all other researchers, especially individuals with similar names.
  • ORCID iDs are used in research workflows, like manuscript and grant submissions, to create links between people and their professional activities in an open and publicly visible way.

Register for an ORCID iD and Connect it to Your GSU ID

If you do not have an ORCID iD, go to the ORCID sign-in page and click on Register Now to create a personal account.
