The SNSF is now an ORCID member
With its membership of ORCID, the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) is supporting the organisation, which offers researchers a unique global identifier (the Open Researcher and Contributor Identification, ORCID).
By adding the ORCID-ID in mySNF, the ID is displayed in the project database P3. Researchers can also import publications from their ORCID (external link) profile into mySNF and projects funded by the SNSF can be added to their ORCID profile by means of a wizard.
For members of ETH Zurich, ETH Library is the central point of contact for questions regarding ORCID. ETH Zurich enables its university members to add their ORCID to the personal profile on www.adressen.ethz.ch (external link). ETH Library is furthermore working on an integration of ORCID into the Research Collection (external link), ETH Zurich’s repository for publications and research data.
