Create and connect your ORCID ID in Haris

ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier) ( provides researchers and authors a unique and permanent digital identifier that can be used throughout research and publishing lifecycles. Open to all, non-profit and community-driven, ORCID is a non-proprietary standard maintained by the scholarly community for the benefit of research and researchers. It is of value to all career stages, from postgraduate research students to the senior academics.

ORCID ID solves the name ambiguity problem, and names that change over time. ORCID addresses this problem by allocating each researcher a unique, persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher, and by making this registry publicly available and searchable.

ORCID ID also enables all of your research outputs to be automatically linked to each other. You can maintain all your key information and contributions in one place. ORCID will, over time, reduce the need to enter the same personal and publication data into many different systems.

It is useful to give your ORCID ID, for example, in funding applications, submitted manuscripts and CV. Some publishers and funders require your ORCID identifier.

Haris includes a field for authors to record your ORCID ID. If you have an ORCID ID, you can add it into Haris by clicking Edit profile > Create or Connect your ORCID ID.

If you do not have one yet, you can apply for one easily at
