ORCID is an independent non-profit organization that provides a persistent identifier – an ORCID iD – that distinguishes you from other researchers and a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your iD. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. Learn more at orcid.org.
How and why we collect ORCID iDs?
This journal is collecting your ORCID iD so we and the wider community can be confident that you are correctly identified and connected with your publication(s). This will ensure your connection to your full body of work stays with you throughout your career. When you click the “Authorize” button in the ORCID popup, we will ask you to share your iD using an authenticated process—either by registering for an ORCID iD or, if you already have one, by signing into your ORCID account, then granting us permission to get your ORCID iD. We do this to ensure you are correctly identified and securely connecting to your ORCID iD. Learn more in What’s so special about signing in. This journal will collect and display authenticated authors’ and coauthors’ iDs on the OJS profile and article page. In addition, article metadata will automatically be pushed to your ORCID record, enabling us to help you keep your record up-to-date with trusted information.

Where are ORCID iDs displayed?
To acknowledge that you have used your iD and that it has been authenticated, we display the ORCID iD icon alongside your name on the article page of your submission and on your public user profile.
