Already have an ORDIC ID? Skip to Step 3 to connect your ORCID with MyActivities.
Click HERE to register for an ORCID ID
When registering, make sure to click on "EVERYONE" in the "Visibility Settings" portion of the form. Doing so will make your research more visible and discoverable. Note: your email address(es) are always kept private. More info here.
Once you have registered for an ORCID, connect it with your UIC NetID and password, so you don't have to remember another password! On the ORCID sign-in page, click on Institutional Account to log in. Type in "University of Illinois Chicago" and you will be directed to UIC's single sign-on page. Once this connection is made, you can log in with your UIC Net ID and password.
Add your basic biographical info, for example, education and affiliation(s), and make it public.
Under My Actions at the top of the page, if you have not already connected your ORCID iD in MyActivities, click "Connect". Copy and paste your ORCID iD from ORCID. Follow the instructions to add your ORCID iD to MyActivities.
If your ORCID iD is already connected, you will see your ORCID iD displayed under your name in top right of MyActivities, and the connection box will not appear under My Actions. No further action is needed.
You may want to return later to add some additional information to ORCID
ORCID strongly recommends using its Search & Link wizard since it will reduce or eliminate data transposition errors, and also enable a reliable link between your ORCID iD and your works.
What is ORCID? ORCID gives you your own persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities to ensure that your work is recognized -- and attached to you!
Why register for an ORCID iD?:

Go to account settings found under you name when logged into ORID to get code to display your iD on other sites or to get a QR Code for your iD.
