You can now connect your Boise State account with ORCID

ORCID stands for open researcher and contributor ID

“ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your professional information — affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.”ORCID


Boise State University has partnered with ORCID to allow you to connect accounts. To do so follow this link to log in with your Boise State ID and follow the directions. From there, you can either create an ORCID iD or log in with an existing one and allow Boise State access.

With this connection in place, the library will soon have the ability to update your publications and publish them to ScholarWorks and other digital repositories. This reduces the redundancy of adding each reference into multiple systems. If you’ve ever wanted a centralized hub for your works and contributions, ORCID is the perfect solution.

In addition, many researchers add their ORCID iD to their email signatures. By clicking this ORCID iD you can pull up their contributions. The best part is your ORCID iD will follow you wherever your career takes you. It does not require you to stay affiliated with any university or business.
