ORCID is a nonprofit organization helping create a world in which all who participate in research, scholarship and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions and affiliations, across disciplines, borders, and time
You need an Orchid ID. More and more workflow is now inviting you to speed things up using your Orchid ID. Already, there are more than 3,000 publishing houses now including orchid as a field of manuscript submission fields, while a smaller but increasing number for example. Plus, IETable, and the Royal Society and Hindawi have made the Orchid ID mandatory which means you can not render a manuscript without one. Similarly, research funding organizations such as Walkom Trust, the Science and Technology Foundation of Brazil and research councils in the UK are now using Orchid to make your funding request easier for everyone.

Information marked as "everyone" can be viewed by anyone who comes to the ORCID.org website or consumed by anyone using the ORCID public API. Data marked as public will also be included in the public data file posted annually by ORCID.
Information marked as "Trusted" can be seen by any Trusted Parties that you have authorised to connect to your ORCID Record. These connections require explicit action on your part. You can also give permission to Trusted Parties to update your ORCID record. You can revoke this permission at any time.
Information marked as "Only Me" can only be seen by you. It is also used by ORCID algorithms to help distinguish your identity from another person who may have a similar name, be it in a similar field, or may be confused with you for other reasons.
