Parts Of An ORCID Record

The ORCID Record is broken down into many parts, which you can see in the image below. In the left column you will find:

  • Name
  • ORCID iD
  • Also Known As
  • Country
  • Keywords
  • Websites
  • Emails

In the right column you will find: 

  • Biography
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Works
  • Funding
  • Peer Review

It is worth noting that not all ORCID records will have all of this information, as evident in the following example. The researcher has the choice to not populate any of the parts of their ORCID profile that they choose.
