ORCID can help research orgnizations to accurately and easily identify and link researchers and scholars with their professional activities. Member research organizations can also help their faculty, staff, or students create ORCID Records to distinguish their scholarship.
Research organizations can include ORCID identifiers in local systems, such as personnel databases, identity management systems, institutional repositories, and research information systems, and also supports interoperability with external systems. As a public identifier, ORCIDs can be exposed where proprietary or private identifiers cannot.

Determine interest in ORCID at your organization
Integrate ORCID into several different workflows. Common integration points for research organizations include:
- Allow researchers to use their ORCID account to sign into your system
- Connect ORCID iDs to repository systems
- Facilitate the creation of ORCID by faculty, staff, or students
- Include ORCID iDs in research information and profile systems
- Include ORCID iDs with electronic theses and dissertations
- Enable ORCID support in third party CRIS sytems or Repositories
- For research organizations that also act as publishers, Include ORCID iDs in the publication process
