The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a 16-digit number unique to each individual and helps to eliminate author name ambiguity and improve discoverability of your research and scholarly works. ORCID is well supported by all the major publishers, as well as a number of funding agencies and institutions.

The CSHL Library supports ORCID’s mission and is an ORCID institutional member enabling the creation of ORCID records on behalf of our authors . You can contact us or we can visit you to assist in the process. If you wish to create an ORCID on your own our libguide explains the process in more depth.

Please contact Mila Pollock or Matt Covey if you have any questions or need our help to register for ORCID.
