We are pleased to announce SSRN, as part of our membership in Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID), has integrated ORCID iDs into SSRN. ORCID is a non-profit, community-driven, Open Access effort to create a registry of unique researcher identifiers. Since disambiguating authors is pretty important to us, joining was a no brainer.
By aligning with ORCID (@ORCID_Org) we continue our commitment to expand visibility and broaden discoverability for SSRN authors. The ability to find the right research at the right time and give the proper author credit for that research is one of our key goals.
