Log On with ORCID

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from other researchers. Learn more at orcid.org.
Today we added ORCID to the list of identity providers at https://cilogon.org/. ORCID is an independent non-profit effort to provide an open registry of unique researcher identifiers and open services to link research activities and organizations to these identifiers. Researchers who do not have a home identity provider that works with CILogon can register for an ORCID iD (if they haven't already) for use with CILogon and many other ORCID-enabled systems.

This is just a first step for CILogon's integration with ORCID. Soon CILogon will also offer the ability for VOs to link ORCID iDs to campus and VO identities using COmanage, as part of our CILogon 2.0 work.
