ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and UT Arlington are teaming up to help you better disseminate you research, and track the progress of your scholarship.
ORCID can help UT Arlington to accurately and easily identify and connect researchers, scholars, and innovators with their professional activities and affiliations, by embedding iDs in your systems, such as personnel and membership databases, identity management systems, ResearchCommons, and research information systems.
Importantly, by using ORCID, UT Arlington can play a part in building a trusted research infrastructure by asserting the connection between researchers and scholars and their affiliation with UT Arlington, by:
- Collecting validated ORCID iDs for employees, members, affiliates, and students to ensure associations with the preferred name (and organization identifier) of UT Arlington, and to enable cross-system tracking and analysis
- Displaying iDs to signal to researchers and affiliates that our information systems are in place to support their use of ORCID
- Connecting information about affiliation – and, if applicable, contributions – to an individual’s ORCID record, making it easy for them to share this trusted information with other systems and profiles they use
- Synchronizing with UTA systems to improve reporting accuracy and speed
