Six Ways to Make Your ORCID iD Work for You!

ORCID iDCongratulations, you’ve registered for an ORCID iD! The next step is using your iD to build your ORCID record.

ORCID – One iD for every Researcher

ORCID, this name pops up more and more frequently. Many researchers at TUHH already have an ORCID iD, though not everybody probably knew what ORCID was good for when some service in research urged them to sign up. Therefore we now offer you a page with information on ORCID iDs. Also the following video does a good job in explaining  how ORCID helps you to connect yourself unambiguously with your research activities and publications.

One more issue: Even though there is a small profile page connected to your ORCID iD, ORCID is not yet another profile or a replacement for a community like e.g. ResearchGate. ORCID prefers to work in the background, quietly providing you with a persistent identifier to connect your research.
