ORCID implementation at SU

You are invited to create your ORCID iD and connect it with your Stellenbosch University unique identifier.  Please click on the button below. If you already have an ORCID iD, please sign in to your account from the button below and connect your iD with your SU iD. (It is advised to use your e-mail address to create your iD)

Although ORCID is free for anyone to register, Stellenbosch University Library and Information Service saw the need to subscribe as an institutional member to take advantage of the full features of ORCID, such as integrating with researcher information systems, the institutional repository (SUNScholar), grants and contracts and HR systems. An invitation e-mail was distributed to all academic staff, researchers and postgraduate students to ask them to create their ORCID iDs and connect it to their Stellenbosch University identity. Those who already have an ORCID iD, could only sign in to their ORCID account and then connect it to their SU identity. 

Researchers are welcome to proceed to create their iDs, populate it with their own publications, biographies, etc. and explore what it can do for a researcher. Your ORCID iD will belong to you throughout your scholarly career to distinguish you from other researchers and ensure consistent, reliable attribution of your work.
