Mississippi State University is an organizational member of ORCID, a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting all who are involved in the research lifecycle to their scholarly and innovative contributions through use of a unique identifier. Research stakeholders include individuals, research and scholarly organizations, publishers, funders, data repositories and libraries, service providers, and others.
Register for a free ORCID iD and receive a persistent identifier – an ORCID iD – that distinguishes you from other researchers and serves as a mechanism for aggregating your research outputs and activities. Publishers, funders, and repositories often integrate ORCID iDs into their submission systems to enable a connection between a digital product and its author(s).
ORCID iDs may also be integrated with other research services workflows. At MSU, Digital Measures and Scholars Junction (MSU's institutional repository) have incorporated these identifiers to facilitate citation data sharing among and between these systems.
