ready Open Researcher and Contributor iD Identifier Schema

Abbreviation: ORCID iD Identifier Schema


General Information
The ORCID Identifier Schema is an https URI with a 16-digit number that is compatible with the ISO Standard (ISO 27729), also known as the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI), e.g. https://orcid.org/0000-0001-2345-6789 Initially ORCID iDs will be randomly assigned by the ORCID Registry from a block of numbers that will not conflict with ISNI-formatted numbers assigned in other ways. ORCID iDs always require all 16 digits of the identifier; they can not be shortened to remove leading zeros if they exist. No information about a person is encoded in the ORCID iD. The identifiers were designed to be usable in situations where personally-identifiable information should/can not be shared. Also, since the ORCID iD is designed to be a career-long identifier, no information that can change over a person's career is embedded in the iD, e.g., country, institution, field of study.

Open Researcher and Contributor ID Registry
ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. The ORCID Registry is a repository of unique researcher identifiers which allows researchers to manage a record of their research activities. In addition, there are APIs that support system-to-system communication and authentication. ORCID makes its code available under an open source license, and will post an annual public data file under a CC0 waiver for free download.

UK Polar Data Centre Data Archive
The UK Polar Data Centre (UK PDC) is the Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) Designated Data Centre for polar science. It is the focal point for Arctic and Antarctic environmental data management in the UK.
