Build your Research Portfolio with ORCID

ORCIDs (Open Researcher and Contributor IDentifiers) are useful to all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation. An ORCID helps to uniquely identify and connect researchers to their contributions and affiliations across time, disciplines, and borders.

Rowan University is a member of the ORCID-US Consortium, which enables Rowan-based researchers to connect their Rowan identity to their ORCID account. Learn more about setting up your ORCID account here.
