ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) – an open-source, non-profit project for creating and maintaining a registry of unique researchers IDs, a transparent and holistic way to present research outputs. An ORCID account includes information about a researcher: name, email address, affiliation, expanded information on research activity.
ResearcherID – an international identifying system for authors of scientific publications. It is used to identify authors in international databases, for instance, Web of Science. It allows creating a researcher’s profile which combines different variants of spelling the name in Latin, creating the list of your own publications, both indexed in the Web of Science databases and those which are not indexed in it, checking your scientometric indicators (citations, Hirsch index). ResearcherID can be linked with ORCID.
