Rendez-vous de l'info scientifique

Using an ORCID identifier for your research

- The essentials in 15 minutes
- Getting started with your profile and advanced settings


This is a 2-part session:

  1. in a first 15-minute part (the essentials), the concept of ORCID iDs will be presented, as well as the advantages for researchers to use one
  2. the second, 1 hour long, scheduled 15 minutes after the end of the first one (advanced settings), will be about creating and managing the ORCID profile

Objectives :

  • Introductory session (15’) : To know the principles and advantages of having an ORCID profile and when and how to use it.
  • Advanced session (1h) : To have an up-to-date ORCID profile, listing your scientific contributions, which can be updated as automatically as possible.

Description : You would like to list your publications but also make visible the reviews you do and your other scientific contributions of various kind? You have homonyms and you want to make sure that your scientific contributions are correctly attributed to you? You wish to remain contactable even if you move to another institution? During these workshops, which can be followed independently, you will be able to review the advantages of having an ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier), and/or learn how to create it and set up the associated ORCID profile so that it reflects your activity as a researcher.
