By creating a personal researcher identifier (ID), you enhance the findability of your publications and research visibility, and make it easier to monitor references to your work.
An identifier is useful in many instances: with manuscripts, when peer reviewing, on websites, in social media, in CV etc. This ensures findability and visibility in databases and networking within scientific communities.
ORCID has been recommended as a national researcher ID in Finland, but also other identifiers, such as Researcher ID, Scopus Author ID and ISNI, can be used.
Familiarise yourself with ORCID in the next section.
