ORCID iD's are unique identifiers that differentiate researchers' publications and grant funding, regardless of name or institutional changes. They are now required for NIH funding and publication in SpringerNature journals. They are free to create and can help you easily populate your NCBI bibliography and ScienCV biosketch.
You can use ORCID to easily add your educational information, grant funding information, and relevant publications to individual biosketches in ScienCV. To do so use the following directions:
You can also link your ORCID iD to you NCBI bibliography so that your publications are automatically synced. This will allow you to add publications to your ScienCV biosketches from a single source. However, this option may only be useful for researchers that already use NCBI my bibliography or have publications indexed in PubMed.
