  • Your Open Researcher and Contributor ID eliminates name ambiguity.
  • Your information and publications remain associated with you, even if you move to another institution or if you change your name.
  • Your unique ORCID ID number is used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. It reduces the time spent on repetitive data entry by pulling information from other sources. Every time you want to submit an article or a grant request, you can simply use your ORCID ID.
  • The ID makes it possible to update your publications list from Web of Science, Scopus, Medline and other resources.
  • ORCID allows researchers to interlink with Researcher ID, Scopus, Google Scholar, Mendeley, LinkedIn, and other profiles.
  • The ORCID ID number stays with you throughout your career in research.

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 this 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 and use these IDs to find publications in CrossRef, PubMed and Scopus, and claim them 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 further questions and support, please contact your Faculty Library. Medical Faculty members who work in hospitals affiliated with the Technion may receive assistance from the hospital librarians.
