Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a system of unique digital identification for researchers. ORCID provides a 16-digit numeric identifier to each researcher who signs up (e.g. 0000-0002-1129-8258), which can help to make links between published research activities and systems, even if their name, role or institution changes.  ORCID is an independent, not-for-profit organisation and the identifiers are free to register for and use. Northumbria University, along with many other institutions, funders and publishers, endorses the use of ORCID.
