What is ORCID?

ORCID is an independent nonprofit organization that provides a persistent identifier—an ORCID iD—that distinguishes you from other researchers and provides a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your iD. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. Learn more at orcid.org.

How and why do we collect ORCID iDs?

JAFSCD collects authors' ORCID iDs as a best publishing practice to ensure that authors and researchers who publish in JAFSCD (1) confirm their authorship and (2) are credited for publishing in JAFSCD.

When you click the “Authorize” button in the ORCID popup, we ask you to share your iD using an authenticated process, either by registering for an ORCID iD or, if you already have one, by signing into your ORCID account, and then granting us permission to get your ORCID iD. We do this to ensure that you are correctly identified and securely connected to your ORCID iD.

Learn more in What’s so special about signing in.

Where are ORCID iDs displayed?

To acknowledge that you have used your iD and that it has been authenticated, we display the ORCID iD icon iD icon alongside your name on the article page of your submission and on your public user profile.
