ORCID @ W&M: Getting Started With ORCID

Get an ORCID iD

Distinguish Yourself in Three Easy Steps

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

You may use your W&M Single Sign-on Account (CAS authentication) to log in or create an ORCID account.
