ORCID – your personal researcher ID

Did you set up an ORCHID iD? If so, you have the option for automatic transfer from PURE to ORCID of your information such as organisational affiliation, the URL to your personal AU website as well as your publications.

You can also transfer data from other sources of your personal ID such as Scopus Author ID and Researcher ID.

If you would like your ORCID iD to be visible from your personal AU website, you must add it manually to the Curriculum and research description – Research and education information. See ‘FAQ about ORCID’.

If you have not created an ORCID, you may want to do this

  • ORCID is a unique, permanent identification number so that you avoid being mixed up with other researchers
  • You ensure a correct affiliation of your publications as well as a complete, up-to-date registration, so that you can easily document your research to publishers, foundations and review committees
  • You will experience an increasing demand from publishers and foundations asking for your ORCID when submitting articles and application for foundations, since your ORCID facilitates their administration and the application procedure.

If you have any questions to ORCID, please contact MBG's contact librarian Tine Legarth Iversen, tli@au.dk or tel. +45 9350 8378.
