ORCiD (Open Research and Contributor ID registry)

**Important notice** As of January 25, 2020, NIH, AHRQ, and CDC will require ORCiD identifiers for some grant submitters.

Instruction on establishing and populating an ORCiD profile as a unique identifier for authors and grant writers.

Please be aware that NIH has issued notification that research training, fellowship, research education and career development awards issued on or after January 25, 2020 from NIH, AHRQ and CDC will require at time of submission the ORCID identifiers of grant seeking personnel. For more information please see: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-19-109.html


Publishers and grant awarding organizations are increasingly integrating author/grant writer ORCiD identifiers in manuscript submission and grant application workflows to aid with author name disambiguation.  The purpose of this online training and consultation is to equip individuals with the skills and instruction needed to establish their ORCiD profile, leveraging when possible MyNCBI's My Bibliography listing included in SciENcv biosketches.  Instruction is also available to transfer information from an existing ORCiD profile to SciENcv.

This training is asynchronous and self-directed via the training materials linked below. CKM Course Directors are available for questions.
