ClinicWiki has opted to use ORICD to help authenticate it's users to ensure appropriate accountability of scholarly efforts. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and connects your contributions to ClinicWiki with other academic contributions. In doing so, our partnership with ORCID ensures: 1) That your contributions to ClinicWiki do not go unnoticed. Your work can be updated in your ORCID profile, listed on your CV, and attributed as an online book chapter. 2) That contributors are held accountable for their work. Your scholastic efforts will be tied to your researcher ID and therefore will discourage low quality posts 3) That the community sees who is contributing to the wiki, their other academic achievements, and offers further transparency in where the content is developed
ORCID is a non-profit organization supported by a global community of organizational members, including research organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders in the research ecosystem. ORCID’s vision is a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time. ORCID enables transparent and trustworthy connections between researchers, their contributions, and affiliations by providing an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities.
