What is ORCID?

ORCID, which stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is a global non-profit organization. Its main mission is to provide a unique identifier (known as ORCID iD) to anyone engaged in research, as well as mechanisms for linking research outputs to this identifier. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions and other research-related services.

Why and how we collect ORCID iDs?

Traffic Safety Research (TSR) journal collects ORCID iDs to make sure that all the authors are correctly identified and connected to their publications. Every publication with us is also 'pushed' to your ORCID record, making sure that it stays up-to-date with your latest achievements.

To create this connection, you have to identify yourself by signing in through the ORCID authorization dialog. The login detailes are handled by ORCID and are not viewed or stored by the journal. We recommend that you connect your ORCID iD to the journal user profile (during the registration or by editing the profile at a later stage). In this case, ORCID iD will follow to all your publications automatically. Alternatively, if you do not have a journal user profile (e.g. if the manuscript was submitted by a co-author), the handling editor will invite you to make the authorization during the preparations of the manuscript for publication.

Where are ORCID iDs displayed?

We display the ORCID iD icon alongside your name in the list of authors of a published article. The actual display may vary depending on the space available (for details, see the ORCID brand guidelines here):
