ORCID - A Simple Way to Track your Publications and Grants

ORCID ( is a non-profit open source option for researchers to track grants, publications, and see what colleagues are doing by searching the ORCID registry.  Why might you want to consider creating an ORCID account?  It is free, takes no more than 10 minutes to complete, and it works with major publishers such as Wiley-Blackwell, Nature, Science, Taylor & Francis, and some professional associations. 

Also, some articles discussing recent uses of ORCID are available below:

The University Publications Database currently contains 1307 articles written by ATSU faculty members.  ORCID is one way to facilitate easier tracking of publications and it will increase the accuracy of our records.  You can read more about the project here (link to page in Check-It-Out).

If you decide to create an ORCID account or if you would like additional information; please contact Margaret Hoogland.  Should you have an ORCID account, please share your ORCID ID with Margaret Hoogland or Jane Hawthorne to ensure your citations within the University Publications Database are current.
