THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

ORCID Number Information

When submitting your paper to one of the Academy’s journals, please include your ORCID number. An ORCID Number (Open Researcher and Contributor Identification Number) is a non-proprietary alphanumeric code used to uniquely identify scientific and other academic authors and contributors. It is used to address the issues that a particular author's contributions to the scientific literature or publications in the humanities can be hard to recognise based solely on names, especially as inconsistent spelling and different writing systems can hinder this further. It provides a persistent identity for humans, similar to that created for content-related entities on digital networks by DOIs. An ORCID Number is a way of ensuring that all of your research is linked identifiably to you.

If you do not have an ORCID number, registration for an ORCID number is a quick and easy process, and can be completed here: https://orcid.org/signin. We are also happy to answer any questions you have regarding this, or to give you support you in registering for one should you need it.
