CRIS Guide in English: ORCID Identifier

What is ORCID?

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open, international and community-based persistent digital identifier that can be used in many different services and systems. ORCID distinguishes you from other researchers and helps with name changes and different spellings of your name. ORCID can also be used to transfer data between systems automatically. In addition, ORCID can be linked to other research identifiers (e.g. ResearcherID, Scopus Author ID).

According to the Tampere University open science policy, all researchers shall acquire the ORCID identifier and use it in their scientific activities. It is highly recommended to add the ORCID identifier in your CRIS expert information as well. In TUTCRIS, publication data can also be transferred automatically from TUTCRIS to ORCID.

More information

Checking your ORCID data

  • Sign in at ORCID.org and check from My ORCID Record that your name has been synchronized correctly.

  • If you have previously saved publications to ORCID manually or imported them from other sources, ORCID combines the sources together. You can then choose the Preferred source in ORCID.
     
  • Check your list of publications in ORCID for duplicates. If the publication type differs in different sources, the same publication might appear in ORCID several times. These duplicates can be removed from ORCID manually.

Optional settings in ORCID (highly recommended)

  1. Disable ORCID inbox notifications for automatic updates (e.g. items added by TUTCRIS)
    - Choose ORCID inbox notifications
    - Untick Items are added or edited in my record by a trusted party
     
  2. Add a secondary email address
    - Choose Email and contact preferences
    - Type in your secondary email address and click Add
    - You can set the primary address by clicking Set Primary
     
  3. Adjust your Email frequency
    - Choose Email and contact preferences
    - Select the preferred email frequency and click Save

Why ORCID?

  • ORCID allows you to attribute all your research outputs correctly and to distinguish between different researchers with the same name.
  • ORCID is permanent, and belongs to you only. Changing institutions or names does not affect your ORCID.
  • ORCID is increasingly common in systems and processes of publishers, research funders and research evaluators.
