Author identification with ORCID


An ORCID iD distinguishes you from other authors. The ORCID iD is a standardised, international and persistent identifier in form of a 16-digit number. It ensures the unique assignment to your publications and research data, but can also be used in communication with publishers or research funders.

In its publication guidelines (opens in new tab), TU Darmstadt recommends the use of an ORCID iD throughout the entire publication process.
