For researchers, the effective and accurate integration of individual research outputs into relevant research activities is an extremely important topic.
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) aims to resolve author identity issues and effectively integrate their research activities with those of other researchers.
In recent years, Taiwanese authorities in charge of the performance management or implementation of subsidy programs have begun applying ORCID in various projects, including the Featured Areas Research Center Program within the framework of the Higher Education Sprout Project by the Ministry of Education, and the Young Scholar Fellowship (YSF) Program launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology.
ORCID = Open Researcher and Contributor ID
ORCID provides free registration for global researchers to obtain a unique set of persistent ORCID.
ORCID is a personal academic identifier for researchers. It is expressed as an https URI with a 16-digit number: http://orcid.org/0000-0003-4922-9167
Over 6.53 million researchers have registered for an ORCID since the establishment of ORCID in 2012 (ORCID, 2019).

Know more about ：What is ORCID
- Eliminate name ambiguity
A unique ORCID distinguishes you from every other researcher with the same or a similar name to you.
- Improve discoverability of your research outputs
ORCID links all your research profiles together to increase the visibility and discoverability of your works on platforms such as Google Scholar, Web of Science (ResearcherID) and Scopus (Author ID), ensuring that your research results are completely and correctly cited.
- Save time
Increasingly more publishing and journal submission systems, such as Elsevier, IEEE, Nature, PLOS, Springer, and Wiley, are supporting the ORCID mechanism that asks researchers to provide an ORCID and automatically imports relevant information and saves the time researchers spend entering the same information on different publishing systems. (ORCID Member Organizations)
75 publishers and over 7,000 journals have included ORCID as a prerequisite for submission.
- Stay with you throughout your career
An ORCID is a unique identifier that persists throughout a researcher’s academic career. It is registered and maintained solely by researchers and stays with them throughout their career, no matter the changes in their line of work.
