An ORCID is a permanent, 16-digit designation that distinguishes you from other researchers. It connects you to your own research publications and professional career. The ORCiD abbreviation stands for Open Researcher en Contributor Identifier.
Registration only takes 30 seconds. Visit the ORCID registration page and fill in the information requested. You will then receive a 16-digit code, your ORCID. You can use it whenever you send in a manuscript, register for a convention or use another research system.
Of course, you can. Log onto the VU Research Portal in the usual fashion, then click 'Edit Person Profile' for a pop-up screen with your profile information. The option ‘Connect or Create your ORCID’ is right below your name and P-number.
ORCID is likely to become the international standard as an increasing number of global institutions, publishers and funders are using it and as it integrates the work processes. You can link your ORCID account to your Research ID or Scopus ID.
I already have a Google Scholar Profile, Research Gate, Academia.edu and LinkedIn. Why should I invest more time in yet another profile?
If I invest my time as a researcher in ORCiD how do I know ORCiD is not another thing that disappears?
ORCiD is an NGO, which the governance structure of a membership organization with over 500 member institutions.
ORCiD a registration agent of the ISNI, the International Standard for Name Identification. As the ISBN is the standard for books, ORCiD will be the standard for scientists.
Because ORCiD is the standard more and more organizations are going to use ORCiD in the scholarly communication process.
In PURE I get a profile page that I have to keep up-to-date. What's in it for me if I connect ORCiD with my PURE profile?
Follow the instructions to register for an ORCiD iD via the VU research portal.
If you already have an ORCID iD, congratulations! But please let us know using the VU research portal. The University can then attach your ORCID to any relevant data it has to send to the Research Councils or VSNU etc.
If you try to register with the same email address as before, ORCID will ask you to log in rather than register. However if you register with a different email address, ORCiD will assume you are a different person.
If you later discover you have more than one ORCiD iD, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange for ORCiD to merge your iDs so you only have one. Anyone using one of your older, deprecated iDs will be redirected to your main ORCiD iD.
When applying for a grant or submitting an article for publication with a funder or publisher that has integrated with the ORCiD registry. You can also add it to your CV, business cards or personal website.
You have sole control over your ORCiD account once you have claimed it.
You can select from many organisations to populate your profile with information from their records. With your permission, ORCID will import articles from Scopus, Europe PubMed Central and CrossRef, among others.
You can think of ORCID as a hub that facilitates the integration of the different parts of the scholarly communication infrastructure:
You can easily import your citations from a growing list of integrated resources, including CrossRef Metadata Search, DataCite Metadata Store, Europe PubMed Central, ISNI Registry, ResearcherID, and Scopus. Simply follow the ADD works instructions.. Only citations with a unique identifier will be imported (e.g., DOI, ISBN).
You could subscribe to the ORCiD Blog by email or RSS.
Yes. Simply login to ORCiD and click the Add Work Manually button in the Works section of your ORCiD record. This will display a template for you to enter citation information and set access control on this item.
Yes, non-Latin script character sets with Unicode encoding are supported for display and search of ORCiD records and the ORCiD Registry. Such citations can be added to your profile manually or imported if the exporting database supports these characters.
One of the advantages of ORCiD is you can keep the same ID throughout your career, wherever you work. We would recommend you update affiliation information as appropriate and (if they have such a service) consider linking it with them.
NARCIS is dé nationale portal voor wie informatie zoekt over wetenschappers en hun werk. Naast wetenschappers maken ook studenten, journalisten en medewerkers binnen onderwijs, overheid en het bedrijfsleven gebruik van NARCIS.
NARCIS biedt toegang tot wetenschappelijke informatie waaronder (open access) publicaties afkomstig uit de repositories van alle Nederlandse universiteiten, KNAW, NWO en diverse wetenschappelijke instellingen, datasets van een aantal data-archieven, alsmede beschrijvingen van onderzoeksprojecten, onderzoekers en onderzoeksinstituten.
Dit houdt in dat NARCIS (nog) niet gebruikt kan worden als ingang tot complete overzichten van publicaties van onderzoekers. Er zijn echter steeds meer instellingen die al hun wetenschappelijke publicaties via NARCIS toegankelijk maken. Op deze wijze kunnen de publicatielijsten van de wetenschappers zo compleet mogelijk worden gemaakt.
In 2004 is de ontwikkeling van NARCIS gestart als een samenwerkingsproject van KNAW Onderzoek Informatie, NWO, VSNU en METIS in het kader van de dienstenontwikkeling binnen het DARE-programma van SURFfoundation. Dit project heeft de portal NARCIS verwezenlijkt, waarin in januari 2007 de dienst DAREnet is geïncorporeerd. Sinds 2011 is NARCIS een dienst van DANS.
National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System
NARCIS is the main national portal for those looking for information about researchers and their work. Besides researchers, NARCIS is also used by students, journalists and people working in educational and government institutions as well as the business sector.
NARCIS provides access to scientific information, including (open access) publications from the repositories of all the Dutch universities, KNAW, NWO and a number of research institutes, datasets from some data archives as well as descriptions of research projects, researchers and research institutes.
This means that NARCIS cannot be used as an entry point to access complete overviews of publications of researchers (yet). However, there are more institutions that make all their scientific publications accessible via NARCIS. By doing so, it will become possible to create much more complete publication lists of researchers.
In 2004, the development of NARCIS started as a cooperation project of KNAW Research Information, NWO, VSNU and METIS, as part of the development of services within the DARE programme of SURFfoundation. This project resulted in the NARCIS portal, in which the DAREnet service was incorporated in January 2007. NARCIS has been part of DANS since 2011.
