An ORCID iD (also ORCiD) is a persistent digital identifier that helps researchers distinguish themselves from other researchers and develop a record of research contributions and affiliations. An ORCiD does meet the requirement of some funders to provide researcher identifiers and all UTK researchers are encouraged to create and ORCID account and develop their profile.
Contact the Scholars' Collaborative (firstname.lastname@example.org) in Hodges Library if you have ORCID questions or need assistance.
