ORCID IDs Are Now Being Indexed in PubMed

Do you have an ORCID ID? An ORCID ID is a persistent 16-digit identifier expressed as a URL which is unique to the individual and serves a valuable purpose – to eliminate author name ambiguity and improve discoverability to one’s research and scholarly works.  Learn more from a past Library Blog post!

PubMed is including this important identifier if available.  As of today, if you search PubMed (orcid[auid]), you will see that 17,698 records now include this information when you view the PubMed record in Medline format.
