  • Attendees will learn about benefits of having an ORCID to researchers.
  • Attendees will gain understanding of how ORCIDs fit into the research workflow.


ORCIDs (Open Researcher and Contributor IDentifiers) are useful to all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation. An ORCID helps to uniquely identify and connect researchers to their contributions and affiliations across time, disciplines, and borders. In this workshop, attendees will learn more about ORCIDs, their benefits and their significance in the research workflow. There will also be time during the workshop to create ORCIDs if an attendee does not have one. This workshop is open to Rowan faculty, students and staff.
