Dear Colleagues,

  Latest News from ORCID!

Organizational affiliations now part of ORCID record

Some publishers will start asking for an ORCID iD (a unique perpetual author identifier)
in early 2014.

What is ORCID?

ORCID(Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors and national boundaries. It is a hub that connects researchers and research through the embedding of ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as research profile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications, and patent applications.

 To sign up - it's free and easy as 1-2-3 at <http://www.orcid.org/> !

With Regards,
