It is strongly recommended that all UNIS researchers register an account with ORCID. ORCID accounts are persistent IDs and help ensure that you retain your identifiability when changing institutions, when other researchers have the same name as you or when using different name-forms. It not only helps ensure you get recognized for your work but cuts down on administrative workload for both you and support staff. An increasing number of publishers are pushing for researchers to use ORCID IDs, or even making them mandatory. You can read more about ORCID here.
