What happens when you’re a researcher with a common name – or when you change your name, or your publication only uses initials? In order to make sure that people know which J. A. Doe is associated with this particular research, an ORCID identifier helps uniquely identify which research is yours and which is the other J. A. Doe. We discussed the ORCID identifier in a previous Data Nudge.

This year, the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research & Innovation, in collaboration with the University Library and Technology Services, announced the newly launched ORCID@Illinois. This makes it easier than ever to get an identifier and link it to your campus identity!

 
 

If I already have an ORCID identifier, should I use ORCID@Illinois?

Yes! Whether you’re new to ORCID or need to get connected, by completing the brief registration process with ORCID@Illinois, your ORCID will autopopulate in your public campus directory profile.

How do I find out more?

The University Library maintains a guide on ORCID that provides additional information on how to get the most use out of your ORCID record.
