I’ve posted before about ORCID. This service will help to identify academic authors uniquely by assigning a persistent digital identifier to each registered author. The semester is over, so you should have some time to follow these suggestions.

1. Register with ORCID.

2. Start using your ORCID in manuscripts, grant proposals, reports, webpages, everywhere!  Publishers like Elsevier, Wiley, and Thomson Reuters will be using ORCID.

3. Pronounce ORCID correctly. Think of the flower, not the fantasy character.
