Wiley to Require Authors to Provide ORCID iD
Wiley Becomes First Major Publisher to Require ORCID IDs for Submitting Authors The ORCID initiative continues to gather momentum. Wiley, a large scholarly publisher, has announced that more than 500 of its journals will begin requiring the submitting author to provide an ORCID iD when submitting a manuscript for review.
They join a group of over 20 journals and publishers that have signed an open letter committing to making ORCID a requirement. ORCID Open Letter

By providing your unique ORCID iD during the publication process, you ensure that you will be properly associated with your work. This will enhance your discoverability in a variety of research systems and ensure that you get credit for your contributions.
