“I have been using ORCiD for a few years now and I think it is great. In addition to titles and references of all publications, including abstracts and
full texts (if permitted), ORCiD also lists current and previous positions, education and qualifications, memberships and services to external organizations, and funding. What is more, since an ORCiD is unique for every researcher, it stays with you when you change positions. Many publishers of journals and books do not include a bio of authors anymore, but simply refer to their ORCiD-number. Finally, since I linked ORCID to my Pure account, my publications are automatically updated on the ORCID website.”

"I strongly support connecting the many websites that researchers have at their disposal to manage their publications, profiles and research data. With ORCID, I can be sure that all my publications are correctly attributed to me. I do not have to worry about name variants that are used in different applications. And since ORCID is used by institutional repositories, commercial databases and social network sites, my information is consistent across all these platforms.
I find it convenient that the ORCID website automatically sends me notifications when my publications are updated. This way I can easily check if there are any errors in my administration."
"Do you want to make the best out of your precious time dedicated to research and teaching activities? Then I highly recommend creating and using an ORCiD! ORCiD is especially useful when you are dealing with +1000 different login credentials for +1000 different systems. Whether you are going to submit a manuscript to a particular submission system, or preregistering your exiting new study within the Open Science Framework, you can all do this with your single ORCiD account, which will save you a lot of time (and frustration). Next to that, in case your affiliation changes, you no longer need to worry about whether people are using your former email address as stated on one of your papers: Your ORCiD will always be up-to-date including your most recent contact details."
