Distinguish, Promote, & Simplify your Research Output with ORCID

Do you have a common name or have published under different name variations and want to ensure that you receive proper credit for all of your scholarly output? Do you want to simplify the process of grant and manuscript submissions and not have to fill out the same fields over and over again? Distinguish yourself and sign up for a ORCID iD!

ORCID, short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID is an international, not-for-profit organization and they maintain a registry of unique identifiers (iDs) for authors. Signing up for a ORCID iD will help you to disambiguate your research from others and help you retain authority over your work. Additionally, many journal publishers and some funders now require an ORCID iD prior to submission.

At this DML workshop, in less than 45 minutes, you’ll learn about the importance of ORCID and how:

-- their iDs will help you to regain authority over all of your research;
-- it can help simplify some workflows of scholarly communication;
-- to quickly add your citations to your ORCID record;
-- to use your ORCID iD to generate your NIH Biosketch.

The workshop is open to all members of the Georgetown community.  Light snacks and water will be provided, but feel free to bring your lunch for some meal time learning.
