EIFL Open Access Programme Manager Iryna Kuchma has been invited to present at a seminar organized by Ukrinformnauka, an agency of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

The seminar is titled ‘Persistent digital identifiers DOI and ORCID’. Kuchma’s presentation will be titled ‘ORCID: Open Researcher and Contributor ID’.

ORCID is a non-proprietary alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies researchers.

When identified by a personal name, an author’s contribution can be difficult to recognize, because personal names are often not unique; they can change (for example, as a result of marriage); there are cultural differences affecting name order and in writing systems, and use of first-name abbreviations may be inconsistent.

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized. To find out more about ORCID, read this Wikipedia article.
