Anyone can see this information
Trusted parties – organizations or individuals to whom you have granted your special permission:
Trusted organizations (e.g. research institutes, publishers or funding bodies)
Trusted individual – any ORCID ID holder (e.g. your faculty librarian or research assistant) that helps manage your ORCID account on your behalf.
"trusted parties" (organizations or individuals) can access your ORCID record to read, write, or update the information. For example, your research institute can update your verified affiliation; a publisher can update your publications data.

+ ORCID and Current Research Information System (CRIS)
Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) help researchers and universities in the world improve the efficiency and performance of their academic activities. These systems enhance worldwide research visibility and collaboration, and advance the reliability and transparency of the national funding mechanisms.
The Israeli Inter University Computation Center (IUCC) is leading a
national effort to establish a national CRIS for monitoring academic publications that will assist in the advancement and improvement of scientific research in Israel. Israeli universities, including the Technion, take part in the project that is carried out with the support of the Planning & Budgeting Committee (the Council for Higher Education).
In the future, your CRIS's record at the Technion can be linked to your ORCiD record. This will enable CRIS to retrieve publication IDs from your ORCiD profile, use these IDs to find those publications in CrossRef, PubMed and Scopus, and claim those records for you automatically.
CRIS also can use your ORCiD to directly identify publications in a wide range of data sources and claim those records for you automatically.
For any support, please contact your
Faculty Library. Medical Faculty members who work in hospitals affiliated with the Technion may receive assistance from the hospital librarians.
