ORCID identifier

What is it?

ORCID are the initials for Open Researcher Contributor ID, an international system of identification that gives researchers an individual, digital and long-lasting code, with the purpose of making it easier for them to identify themselves and to recover their scientific output.



  • Obtain your ORCID code with the institutional email of the URV.
  • Use this identifier in all your documents and particularly when communicating with publishers.
  • Regularly update your ORCID code with the references of your scientific output (e.g. automatic updating through Crossref).
  • Link with other personal profiles (Researcher ID, Scopus ID, My Citations Google Scholar, etc.).

If you have any queries or require any additional information, ask the research support staff at your CRAI or get in touch by email(ELIMINAR)
