Have you tried to search for an author, only to discover that he/she shares
a name with 10 other researchers? Or that Google Scholar stopped tracking
citations to your work after taking your spouse's surname a few years ago?
The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is a permanent identifier
system for researchers that provides a persistent 16-digit numeric
identification number (e.g. http://orcid.org/0000-0001-5109-3700) to
distinguish you from all other researchers.
