ORCID identification

What is ORCID iD?

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?

The Traffic Safety Research journal collects ORCID iDs to make sure that all the authors are correctly identified and connected to their publications. It also guards your name from potential misuse like when it is added to the author list without your consent. Every new publication with the TSR is also ‘pushed’ to your ORCID record, helping to keep it up-to-date with your latest achievements.

To create this connection, you have to identify yourself by signing in through the ORCID authorization dialogue. Each time you are added as an author to a submission, the system generates an automatic email that contains a link to the ORCID authorization. The login details are handled by ORCID and are not viewed or stored by the journal.

We recommend that you connect ORCID iD to your journal user profile (during registration or by editing it at a later stage). In this case, ORCID iD will follow to all your new submissions automatically.

Where and how 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):
