ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID)
The Association of Scientific Editors and Publishers in the methodological recommendations advise the authors to advance their articles before the publication. Much attention is paid to identifiers. In particular, ORCID ID allows accurately identifying the author and avoiding confusion in case of identical names. The personal area in the ORCID system also facilitates the process of tracking the author's publications.
The registration process is free. It takes a few minutes in many languages.
