Open Research and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a non-profit effort to address author name ambiguity by creating a central registry containing unique identifiers for authors. ORCID provides authors with a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes each author from other authors with similar names and supports automated linkages between an individual author’s identity and his or her work.

Authors may register for an ORCID identifier here. For assistance, please contact Amy Koopmann at amy-koopmann@uiowa.edu
