ORCID is a persistent ID, which makes identification of your scholarly publications much easier. Like DOI’s provide a unique ID for articles, so does ORCID give you one as an author. ORCID is your personal ID.
ORICD solves the problem of name ambiguity. Many authors publish under a number of different name varieties – with or without middle names or initials. Also there are many authors out there with the same name, which makes it hard to create a complete overview of a single authors’ publications.
