We encourage all EDIS authors and contributors to register for an ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and include that ID with their submissions. As of September 2021, UF/IFAS through Florida Online Journals ORCID membership has been sending emails to authors allowing them to add or authenticate their ORCiDs associated with their submissions.
Among the benefits to researchers,
- it is a free, unique, persistent identifier that disambiguates you and your work.
- Using your iD makes life easier for you and the institutions and organizations you connect with throughout your research career
