What’s an ORCiD?

An ORCiD (note the iD in there) is a digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher, no matter how common your name is. It makes sure you and your research activities can be easily identified, meaning you get the credit for all the work you do. Plus it’s free and takes just 30 seconds to do.

Why do you need an ORCiD?

Once you have an ORCiD it can be tied to, and integrated in, your research activity. That includes in the journal articles you publish.

If you include an ORCiD as you submit your manuscript to be published in a Taylor & Francis or Routledge journal your ORCiD can be on your published article.

That means people can use it to see what else you’ve published and what other research activities you’re been up to (such as grant submissions or book chapters), showcasing your professional activities.

How do you include your ORCiD in your online submission to a Taylor & Francis or Routledge journal?

Many of our journals use an online submissions system, such as ScholarOne Manuscripts or Editorial Manager. To include your ORCiD, simply add it to your account after you login.

  • In ScholarOne Manuscripts: Go to your name at the top of the login screen and select from the drop down menu ‘Email/Name’. From the options on screen, select either register for an ORCiD (if you don’t already have one) or associate your account with an existing one via the links.

  • In Editorial Manager: Go to ‘edit my account’. In the ‘Email/Name’ screen go to the ORCiD field, where you can register for an ORCiD or associate your account with an existing one via the links.

Once published, your ORCiD will then be on the first page of your published article (PDF version) on Taylor & Francis Online.
