Make your research impact blossom by creating, connecting, and leveraging your Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCiD)

Tips for Leveraging Your ORCID

Sign-in through CSUF: On the ORCID sign-in page, select "Institutional account" to log in. One less password to remember.

Make your works public: This maximizes the visibility of your research and maximizes the potential for the research and publications listed in your ORCID account to be automatically pushed into applications or pulled into other systems (e.g., grant databases or expert profiles).

Add name variations: If you have published under other names, be sure this is reflected in your ORCID profile.

Enter your ORCID iD: Provide your iD as prompted when submitting manuscripts and grant proposals.

Link your ORCID iD: Link your ORCID to other services including ResearcherID, Web of Science, figshare, Zenodo, disciplinary archives, professional organization websites, ResearchGate,, Google Scholar, etc.

Display and share your ORCID ID: Include your ORCID iD on conference posters, webpages, email signature lines, blogs, business cards, social media accounts--anywhere you would benefit from refering others quickly and reliably to the body of your research.
