What is ORCID?
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. It provides a persistent identifier for humans, similar to that created for content-related entities on digital networks by digital object identifiers (DOIs).
- The magazine "Journal of IMAB" requires it is mandatory to provide ORCID ID number of the corresponding author and all co-authors upon submission of the manuscript to the journal. For this reason, it is imperative that authors submitting the paper for publication should fill in their ORCID iD in Cover Letter.

Why is ORCID good for you?
- ORCID allows identification beyond names. Globally, names can be very common, they can change, they can be transliterated into other alphabets and so reliably linking researchers with their research and organizations can be difficult - this is solved through a unique ORCID iD ORCID logo.
- An ORCID iD also allows you to keep a constantly updated digital curriculum vitae. Individuals decide to register, which research activities to connect to their ID, which organizations to allow access, what information to make publicly available, what to share with trusted parties, and what to keep private. Individuals can control their profiles and can change these settings and permissions at any time.
