ORCID iD Registration

ORCID iDs are unique identifiers assigned to individual scholars and researchers to distinguish scholars from one another. Using an ORCID iD allows your manuscripts, grants, and other scholarship to be more discoverable and integrated within larger research networks.  ORCID iDs are commonly required by publishers and external funders. 

Beginning October 1, 2019, NIH, AHRQ and CDC will require ORCID iDs to be linked to the eRA Commons account for individuals supported by institutional research training, career development, and other research education awards.

This link will allow individuals to register for an ORCID iD.  After completing the registration, individuals can link their ORCID iD to their eRA Commons personal profile by following these instructions.
