ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
During Autumn/Winter 2017 the EUI will integrate Cadmus, EUI research repository with ORCID
