Staff and students without a Symplectic profile can register for an ORCID iD at the ORCID website.

1. Go directly to ORCID.

2. Complete the registration form. Use a personal or institutional email address – you can add others to your profile once registered.

3. You will be prompted by ORCID to add more information to your profile.

Enter as much information as you like, but we do recommend adding your institutional affiliation. You can add your education and employment history, as well as works from CrossRef, Scopus and others by using the Search and link function on your profile homepage.. You can also import a BibTeX file to populate your profile with your publications.

4. Start using your ORCID iD! Many organisations now ask for it when you apply for a grant or submit a paper for publication.
