ORCID

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID)

It is nowadays important for researchers/publishing authors to have an unambiguous identification and a chance to link the identity to their own research results.

Besides the problem of ambiguous author name (which can change, be abbreviated, be stated in different order etc.) there is a range of identifiers which are assigned to the author in various systems. Gradually, a need arises to unite these identifiers under one unifying identity.

CTU Central Library together with CTU Computing and Information Center has created an environment for assigning the unique ORCID identifier within CTU information system.

The solution is provided by ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) system.
