ORCID iDs Benefit Authors

Are you a young researcher just getting started? Do you work in an area where frequent job moves are required? Do you simply have a name more common than others, leading to confusion about authorship and difficulty in following your research efforts?

You need an ORCID iD.


ECS to Require ORCID iD

As of January 1, 2018, ECS will require all corresponding authors to have an ORCID iD in order to submit to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society or the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology. ORCID iDs will be published in accepted articles and included in articles’ metadata to improve content discoverability and citation.

Contributing authors who would like their ORCID iDs displayed along with the corresponding author’s iD will need to update their profiles in ECSxPress with their ORCID iDs prior to their paper’s acceptance.
