How to get get started with ORCID in 3 easy steps:
Register or Connect your ORCiD through Rowan's ORCID website: https://orcid.rowan.edu/ or click the image below.
Use your new ID in systems such as manuscript submissions and grant applications
Give the organizations you trust (such as Rowan University) permission to update your record
Rowan University has recently become a member of the ORCID-US Consortium, which enables Rowan-based researchers to connect their Rowan identity to their ORCiD account.
What are the advantages of linking my ORCiD to my Rowan identity?
1. Provides automatic verification to ORCID of your affiliation.
2. Allows you to use Rowan credentials to sign into ORCID.
What other benefits does having an ORCiD provide?
It provides a URL to your scholarly record that can be used elsewhere, such as on a personal website, CV, tenure or promotion application, or email signature.
It can automatically import your publications from various data sources as well as populate other profiles you may be required to maintain such as Pure or NIH Biosketches.
It allows non-STEM researchers to highlight their scholarly work even if it does not consist of articles found in library databases.
It is a non-profit open system that you can use throughout your career even if you leave Rowan.
Register your ORCiD now--or link your existing ORCID account to your Rowan identity--so that you can:
Ensure your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
Reliably and easily connect you with your contributions and affiliations
Reduce data entry (enter data once, re-use it often)
Improve recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs
Ensure that your research record is interoperable (works with many institutions, funders, and publishers systems) and persistent (enduring)
ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor IDentifier. It is a unique, open digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher with the same or similar name to you. Anyone who participates in research, scholarship, or innovation can register an ORCiD for themselves free of charge, and you can use the same ID throughout your whole career -- even if your name changes or you move to a different organization, discipline, or country.
Your ORCiD is fully owned and controlled by you - the ORCID Terms & Conditions mean that no one else may assign an ORCiD to you. No one else can see information you mark as ‘visible only to me’ (see Visibility Preferences below) and no one can update your ORCiD record without your permission. You can however assign a trusted individual (see Add a Trusted Individual below) to update your account in your behalf.
ORCID is not a social media platform or a profile system. It is a permanent place to record your scholarly publications, institutional affiliations, grant funding, and service activities.
How does ORCID handle privacy of my information?
When you create an ORCID account, you have full control of the privacy of your information. Review the Privacy Settings in your account to customize access to your information, including the options to make your information Public, Private, or available to Trusted Individuals.
You can customize the privacy setting using the icons to the right of each item in your ORCID publication record.
The federal notice "Requirement for ORCID iDs for Individuals Supported by Research Training, Fellowship, Research Education, and Career Development Awards Beginning in FY 2020" (Notice Number: NOT-OD-19-109) is shown below.
By way of this Notice, federal agencies NIH, AHRQ, and CDC announced that individuals supported by research training, fellowship, research education, and career development awards were required to have ORCiDs (formerly called ORCID iDs) starting in FY 2020.
Publishers and journals who have committed to requiring ORCiDs in the publishing process:
Rowan University would like you to link your ORCID to Rowan University so that published works can be easily identified as belonging to Rowan University Faculty and Staff. This allows the University to have more accurate and complete data pertaining to research activities. You can create an account using your Rowan login credentials and affiliate yourself with Rowan University.
Once you've created your ORCID iD, it's easy to add your scholarly works to your ORCID record, enable automatic updates, and delegate management of your record to someone else.
Rowan University community users can access the slides to the workshop presentation linked below by using your Rowan login credentials. The presentation provides an overview of ORCID, how to create an account or merge existing accounts, using Rowan single sign-on to login and affiliate your account with Rowan University, adding works to your profile and links to some tutorials on all the how-tos. This workshop is offered regularly and can be delivered upon request. Please visit https://libguides.rowan.edu/libraryworkshops to learn about upcoming workshop opportunities.
