ORCiD (pronounced "orkid") stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCiD is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers. An ORCiD iD acts as a unique identifier for a person, much like each publication in PubMed has a PubMed ID.
Why do I need an ORCiD identifier (ORCiD iD)?
While not mandatory, publishers and funding agencies are increasingly adopting ORCiD as a tool to manage submissions and applications. At some point in the future having an ORCiD iD and using ORCiD as a tool may be required. For new researchers, an ORCiD iD offers a way to have an accurate record of your scholarly output from the very beginning. You can use it on your CV, departmental webpage, email signature, in professional directories and more.
On average, a name in PubMed could be referencing 8 authors. Having an ORCiD, you can quickly identify which publications are yours. ORCiD is also transferrable to other institutions.

Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is a new electronic system that helps researchers assemble the professional information needed for participation in federally funded research. SciENcv gathers and compiles information on expertise, employment, education and professional accomplishments.
Researchers can use SciENcv to create and maintain biosketches that are submitted with grant applications and annual reports. SciENcv allows researchers to describe and highlight their scientific contributions in their own words.
