ORCID   is  Not  a  Research Profile !
Then what is it?

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. It is free, open, mobile, and community-driven.

Using an ORCID iD ensures that other research systems and services know who you are. This simplifies manuscript submissions and grant applications, and improves author searches in key databases like Web of Science and Scopus.

Think of ORCID as the scholarly equivalent of your
HK Identity Card number

Why You Should Care
ORCID is a global initiative already in use by major funding bodies and publishers including the US National Institutes of Health, the Wellcome Trust, Elsevier, Thomson Reuters, and many more
You can link your ORCID to other systems like ResearcherID and Scopus. This helps ensure that your work is easily discoverable in key research databases.
By including your ORCID iD when submitting a manuscript, the article will be automatically added to your ORCID account after publication (assuming the publisher supports this function)
Starting early in 2015…
HKBU will invite faculty to create an ORCID iD
  • You’ll receive an e-mail from us inviting you to create an ORCID iD. It will only take 30 seconds!
  • Our system will automatically upload the publication information we have on file for you (most works published between mid-2009 and mid-2014)
  • Excited about ORCID? You can create one by yourself now. When you receive our e-mail you can link an existing account instead of creating one. We will still add publication information to your record.
