Open Researcher and Contribution ID

ORCID is a 16th dígit code which allows identifying the scientific production of a particular author.

It aims to end with the problem of ambiguities and duplicates in assigning authorship to scientific productions, whether that be because of similar names, or changes in the signature of one same author throughout his/her career.

  • Key element with which to link the research activities of one same author found in EGRETA through the research portal of Catalonia (Portal de Recerca de Catalunya).
