An ORCID iD is a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher.
Why you should have one:
- It ensures that your research stays assigned only to you and overcomes issues such as similar names, inconsistent name formats, legal name changes and common names.
- Reduces form filling (enter data once and re-use it often)
- Improves recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs.
- Is interoperable (works with many institutions, funders and publishers)
We encourage Falmouth researchers to register for an ORCID identifier, via the ORCID website.
