RShare Digital Repository


ORCID is an acronym for an Open Researcher and Contributor ID, and is a unique identifier to differentiate you and your work from other global scholars with a similar name. When you establish an ORCID account, you are assigned a unique number identifier that assures readers of your identity. When your scholarship is added to your ORCID profile, you indicate a positive identity for both yourself and your scholarship.

For more on ORCID, please see the organisation's About Us page.
