What's in a name? Not much if asking Shakespeare or those who keep track of an author's publications.
Often a name alone, or even a name and affiliation is not enough information to verify a reseacher's publication. This can lead to lost credit for your work.
The main goal of Open Researcher and Contributer ID is to give each individual author a unique ID to distinguish one author from another. All publishing researchers should register with ORCiD, as it is especially useful for authors who may have published under different names, varied order of names, multiple affiliations, or have changed the use of shortened names or initials throughout his or her career. This page will explain ORCID and how you can obtain your ID.
You can search for your publications using one of the listed member organizations. You will need to grant permission to any member organizations to add records to your ORCID iD that you use to search for publications. You can revoke the permission at any time (Trusted Organizations in your Account Settings).
