Having an ORCID iD allows you to better manage your research profile and keep it up-to-date. In addition, publishers, funders, and other organizations are increasingly using ORCID in their manuscript submission and grant application procedures.
Your ORCID ID is the hub in the scholarly communication environment, ensuring interoperability between you and your publisher(s), employer institution(s), and funder(s).
ORCID iDs are being adopted by more and more publishers and grant funders as the primary means of distinguishing their authors for submissions, applications, and reporting.
