ORCID provides persistent and unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. ORCID helps you to link your ORCID iD easily and reliably to your publications. Recently, the 100th ORCID iD was registered in Pure, the registration system for research output.
WUR Library encourages researchers and PhDs to create a unique ORCID iD and then to connect your ORCID to Pure. In that way your research output registered in Pure will automatically be sent to your ORCID profile.
Once you have an ORCID identifier and start using it in your research workflows, your research output will benefit from improved discoverability.
Your ORCID iD is issued to you personally. Should you move to a new position, your ORCID identifier goes with you, ensuring that you always have a unique way to identify yourself as an author or contributor to publications.
