ORCiD profiles are now being listed in Trove

Trove is the National Library of Australia discovery interface. ORCID profiles are now being listed in the People and Organisations zone of Trove.

ORCID is a non-profit, community-based organisation which aims to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID assigns a 16 digit number, a unique identifier, to any researcher who wants one—be they an astrophysicist studying the universe, a zoologist studying amoeba, or anyone in between.

To get your ORCID profile listed in Trove, make sure your publication profile is in ResearchOnline@JCU is up-to-date. Including DOIs in the records for your publications will also help to match your name and profile.

As an example, see this profile in Trove and scroll down to the box titled Resources for Jacqueline Kerri Wolstenholme to see the link to her ORCID profile.

This information is adapted from the Trove blog post, Spot the Blue Square.
