Aineistonhallinnan opas: ORCID -Open Researcher and Contributor ID

Opas aineistonhallinnan prosesseihin


ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID)  is part of the wider digital infrastructure needed for researchers to share information on a global scale. Orcid enable transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations by providing an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities.

The ORCID iD is an https URI with a 16-digit number that is compatible with the ISO Standard (ISO 27729), also known as the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI), e.g.


  • distinguishes you and ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
  • reliably and easily connects you with your contributions and affiliations
  • reduces form-filling (enter data once, re-use it often)
  • improves recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs
  • is interoperable (works with many institutions, funders, and publishers)
  • is persistent (enduring)

Find out more about ORCID iD on ORCID's pages or the Finnish researcher identifier website (in English).
