TUNICRIS Guide: ORCID Identifier

ORCID identifier

     Open Researcher and Contributor ID


According to Open Science Guidelines at the Tampere higher education community -document (pdf), each researcher should acquire an international ORCID researcher identifier and use it in all scientific activities. ORCID is an open, international and community-based persistent digital identifier that can be used in many different services and systems.

  • The identifier will provide you with a permanent and unique digital identifier, series of numbers that will distinguish you from other researchers.
  • 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.

Note in the ORCID service

  • Sign in at 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.
