How and why we collect ORCID iDs?

This journal is collecting your ORCID iD. When you click the “Authorize” button in the ORCID popup, we will ask you to share your iD using an authenticated process: either by registering for an ORCID iD or, if you already have one, to sign into your ORCID account, then granting us permission to get your ORCID iD. We do this to ensure that you are correctly identified and securely connecting your ORCID iD. Learn more in What’s so special about signing in.

Where are ORCID iDs displayed?

To acknowledge that you have used your iD and that it has been authenticated, we display the ORCID iD icon iD icon alongside your name on the article page of your submission and on your public user profile. Learn more in How should an ORCID iD be displayed.
