An ORCID is a unique number for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. Creating an ORCID also provides you with a public profile page where you can list your publications (known in the profile as "works"), and other CV information such as education, employment etc.
Simply complete the online registration form. It's fast, and free.
Method 1: Link with other identifiers, such as Scopus, ResearcherID or PubMed
Method 2: Export publications from your Deakin Elements profile
Configuring your ORCID ID will enhance the ability of Elements to find and match your publications. If your ORCID profile is set up to automatically claim matched records from Scopus, CrossRef or PubMed, or if you included your ORCID ID with your publication manuscript, the publications will be automatically claimed in Elements.
To export publications from your ORCID record to the ARC’s RMS, make sure you set the privacy level of your ORCID profile to Everyone or Trusted Parties.
More information and downloadable guides are available at the ARC website.
