The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) system is a universal system for identifying authors of scientific papers by assigning every researcher an individual unique alphanumeric designation.
The purpose of this free international register is to precisely identify authors and properly link them with publications in databases.

Benefits for researchers of having an ORCID ID are, above all, the elimination of problems related to:

  • multiple versions of the surname and first name, which results from incorrect entries in the authors's data,

  • the presence of two or more authors with the same surname and first name, or possibly the initial of the first name,

  • change of name or affiliation.

PhD students are required to provide information about their ORCID IDs to:

  • Bibliography Department: bibliografia@gumed.edu.plPhD students from the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Health Sciences,

  • Library of the Faculty of Pharmacy: biblfarm@gumed.edu.pl – PhD students from the Faculty of Pharmacy.
