EASE webinar: Persistent Identifiers for People: An Introduction to ORCID

Tuesday, 23 July 2024, 1pm (UK time)

ORCID, which stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is a global, not-for-profit organization financially sustained and governed by its member organizations. ORCID’s vision is a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time.

What many people think of when they think of ORCID is the ORCID iD, which is a unique, persistent identifier free of charge to researchers, and the ORCID Record that is connected to an ORCID iD. But, ORCID is much more — technologies, services, and communities of practice — that enable ORCID integration to facilitate data linkages, create system efficiencies, and maximize researcher impact.

In this webinar, Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Chair of the ORCID Board and a professor/librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will provide an overview of ORCID in the context of the contemporary persistent identifier landscape and share efforts to further catalyze the global reach and engagement of ORCID.

This event is free and open to all.
