WEBINAR: ORCiD - Creating a Unique Author ID
ORCiD is a unique identifier that distinguishes an author's work from that of every other researcher. 

MD Anderson faculty and students are being asked to create an ORCiD to be added to their faculty or student profile.  In this quick webinar, we'll show you how to set up an ORCiD, when it should be used, and how publishers and funders like the NIH are using this unique ID.
