ORCIDs surpass 5-million mark

An ORCID iD is a way of establishing trusted connections between you, your scholarly works, and your professional activities and affiliations.  It’s also a sure way of distinguishing yourself from other scholars with similar names – aka ‘disambiguation.’ 

ORCID has become a worldwide standard widely used in publishing, granting, and online research networks.  In July 2018, ORCID logged its 5-millionth member.

UBC is an ORCID-CA member and is in early planning for campus implementation, including an ORCID sign-up campaign this fall.
