We are pleased to announce that from February 2018. Arab World English Journal and AWEJ for Translation & Literary Studies launched an initiative of using ORCiD (https://orcid.org/). Our team will link (ORCID iD) to the new papers through Crossref.
ORCiD is a freely available digital identifier service that directly links a researcher to their work, ensuring an individual and their publication/research activities can be easily distinguished and identified by anyone anywhere in the world.
To facilitate this initiative, we strongly encourage all authors to register and send their ORCiD ID with their new submissions. If you do not already have an ORCiD you can easily and quickly register for one here; https://orcid.org/register .
What is ORCiD?
ORCiD is non-profit organization dedicated to solving the long-standing name ambiguity problem in scholarly communication. Once registered with ORCiD, an individual has signed up to a freely available digital identifier service that directly links a researcher to their work, ensuring that individuals and their publication/research activities can be easily distinguished and identified by anyone anywhere in the world.
ORCiD is increasingly being used by those who recognize the fundamental need for researchers to be accurately and easily identified and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, ORCiD is rapidly becoming a required piece of identifying information in many familiar situations within the academic environment.
