What is ORCID?
ORCID is a widely used unique researcher/author identifier scheme. An ORCID ID is a 16 character code (e.g., "0000-0001-5390-4394") which allows researcher/authors to be unambiguously identified, regardless of name similarities or name changes. ORCID IDs supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized and credited appropriately. Read more at: http://orcid.org
The NYU Health Sciences Library urges all School of Medicine faculty to get your ORCID ID and to grant the Library permission to read/update your ORCID profile.
What are the benefits of ORCID?
2. In addition to managing IDs, ORICD is also a prominent online research platform, presenting a profile of your work to the international reseach community. When you grant the NYU Health Sciences Library permission to handle updates, you will not have to maintain that profile yourself; the Library will do it for you.
3. ORCID can be used, with SciENcv, to automatically populate your NIH Biosketch with appropriate publications. Read more at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK154494/
5. Your ORCID ID will lower barriers to participation in the rapidly evolving research infrastructure. At NYULMC ORCID IDs are being considered as a means of identifying extramural users of research core facilities. Other institutions and players are likely to follow suit.
Automatically updating ORCID from the NYU Faculty Bibliography
For this to work, your ORCID account must grant the NYU Health Sciences Library "trusted organization" status. It's a reasonably quick and easy process you can initiate from NYULMC ORCID sign up page
Once the Library has trusted organization status it will keep your ORCID publications listing synched with the NYU Faculty Bibliography. It will also keep your basic demographic data current (based on authoritative School of Medicine data). At present it will not synch your grants and funding information or your educational and employment data (apart from your School of Medicine appointment).
You may revoke trusted organization status at will.
