ORCiD for Academics
Academics are encouraged to sign up for and register their ORCiD with the University.
Once completed, there are a number of ways you can use your ORCiD to make life a little bit easier and maximise the benefit of setting up an ORCiD. Step-by-step instructions are available.
Additional (optional) steps below...
- Step 1Link Author ID & Researcher ID to ORCiD
Once you have registered for ORCiD you can link your Scopus Author ID and Web of Science (WoS) Researcher ID and link all publications associated with the Author ID. This means you will not have to manually add all your publications to your ORCiD.
Refer to the Quick Reference Guide for instructions on how to do this.
- Step 2Link ORCiD in Aurora and Researcher Profile
Linking your ORCiD with Aurora will enable auto-claiming of publications associated with your ORCiD.
Refer to the Quick Reference Guide for instructions and further details.
You can also create a link on your Researcher Profile to your ORCiD.
Refer to the blog post and guide for instructions and further details.
- Step 3Provide your ORCiD to Publishers
Your ORCiD can be provided to publishers (some already require this), allowing them to link your ORCiD to your publication.
This will also enable online databases to accurately link your name to this publication, which will also enable internal University systems like Aurora, harvest your publications.
- Step 4Provide your ORCiD to Funders
Some funding bodies require researchers to provide an ORCiD when submitting applications. In Australia the ARC and NHMRC have issued advice that they support the use of ORCiD.
The University encourages researchers to provide their ORCiD when submitting applications using RMS (ARC), RGMS (NHMRC) and any other national or international schemes which request your ORCiD.
