Welcome to ORCID-CA: The ORCID Canada Consortium
ORCID-CA was established to support a Canadian ORCID community of practice, to enable the Canadian research community to take full advantage of the ORCID API in local institutional systems, and to promote the use of ORCID iDs by Canadian scholars. ORCID-CA is sustained through institutional memberships that include Canadian universities, government agencies, research centres/networks, not-for-profit publishers, and more.
ORCID helps scholars identify and disambiguate themselves across their careers by giving individuals an ORCID iD, a unique identifier that persists over time. Unlike other author identifiers, ORCID is not limited by discipline, by geographic region, or to any proprietary publisher or information provider. Major publishers, funders, and research institutions have adopted this international standard to support improved data exchange between scholarly research platforms and information systems.
Canadian scholars: Please register for an ORCID iD on ORCID’s website. You can find information about ORCID for researchers here.
Canadian institutions: Please contact ORCID-CA@crkn.ca for more information on how to join ORCID-CA.
