In 2018 Arab World English Journal launched an initiative using ORCiD and asked all authors to provide ORCID ID with their submissions. Our team has linked the authors’ ORCID ID to their papers and bios.
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.
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.
What is ORCiD?
ORCiD is a 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.
