ORCID author identifiers in the Research Collection
The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) enables researchers to be identified clearly and publications attributed correctly to people – which is now possible in ETH Zurich’s Research Collection, too. Since mid-2017, members of ETH Zurich have been able to link their ORCID iD to the ETH Zurich profile at www.adressen.ethz.ch (external link). They just need an ORCID profile.
Now you also have the option of assigning your ORCID iD to your publications in the Research Collection. Moreover, you can import publications into the Research Collection from your ORCID profile.
ORCID is a persistent, unique and internationally recognised identifier for academic authors. By using ORCID, you are supporting the correct and complete attribution of your publications to your name and facilitating the data flow between the Research Collection and ETH Zurich’s websites.
The Research Collection (external link) is ETH Zurich’s publication platform, where members of the university can publish academic full texts open access and archive research data or make them publicly accessible.
