ORCID and Your Data
ORCID is an open, nonprofit, community-driven effort to create and maintain an international system of researcher IDs.
When it comes to publishers and funding agencies, ORCID does not restrict with whom it works. ORCID’s goal is to work with all such entities in order to connect you and your research and to make your scholarship highly discoverable through many different platforms and systems.
The information in your ORCID Record—positions held, articles published, grants received, e-mail addresses, organizations affiliated with—is non-sensitive and available from other, public sources.
ORCID and Privacy
Your ORCID iD is fully owned and controlled by you - the ORCID Terms & Conditions mean that no-one else may assign an ORCID iD to you. No-one but you can see information you mark as ‘visible only to me’ (learn more about visibility settings) and no-one can update your ORCID record without your permission.
