RUP and ORCID Help You Get Credit for Your Work


ORCID provides a digital name (an iD) that uniquely and persistently identifies researchers and other contributors to research. Simply put, an ORCID iD helps to give credit where credit is due and reduces time spent on administrative and reporting requirements. Rockefeller University Press (RUP) has become the latest signatory of an open letter that is part of an industry-wide movement to require ORCID iDs for journal authors. In an effort to support universal adoption of ORCID iDs, we require corresponding authors, and encourage all contributing authors, to provide their ORCID iD via our submission system. Upon publication, the ORCID records for all iDs associated with an article will be automatically updated to include this latest publication.

What you Gain:

  • An ORCID iD helps you unambiguously identify and attribute your work to you. This includes all of your contributions such as datasets, articles, books, media stories, samples, experiments, patents, and notebooks.
  • An ORCID iD will enable you to maintain all of your key information in one place. You control your privacy settings, including what information is displayed publicly, what is kept completely private, what is shared only with trusted partners, and who those trusted partners are.
  • An ORCID iD links with other systems you use, including those maintained by your institutions, funders, and publishers, and exchanges data freely with those research information systems, which means less data entry by you.

How It Works:

  • Researchers and scholars may register for an ORCID iD here.
  • RUP’s collection of ORCID iDs is performed through our manuscript submission system. iDs are never entered manually, and they remain authenticated throughout the publication process.
  • If your iD was provided on submission, upon publication your ORCID record will be auto-updated to include your article.

What is ORCID?

ORCID is an independent, not-for-profit organization that is community-driven, and led by a board of individuals representing research societies, publishers, universities, and funders. Learn more about ORCID here.
