ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) Announces Registry Launch
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) has launched its Registry (http://orcid.org), where researchers can distinguish themselves by creating a unique profile and personal identifier for themselves.
An ORCID is a reliable and simple connector that paves the way for rich linkages to all types of related research objects through author IDs. The effort is being led by an international and diverse set of collaborators working across many types of organizations. "Distinguish yourself in three easy steps" today to identify yourself in all the records associated with your scholarly work: http://about.orcid.org/.
