Launch: ORCID Launches Registry

ORCID  (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is excited to announce the launch of its Registry (, where researchers can distinguish themselves by creating a unique personal identifier.

“ORCID addresses a problem shared by individuals and organizations across the research community: reliably connecting research with researchers,” said Laure Haak, Executive Director of the non-profit ORCID organization.  “But ORCID is more than a Registry, it is a community effort to embed these identifiers in research workflows.”
