Using ORCID to Manage Your Scholarly Identity

Date: Thursday, November 5th 

Meeting Prep: 2:30pm EST

Presentation Time: 3:00pm EST

Registration Link:

Webinar Description: An ORCID iD is a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. It is like a social security number for research—it follows you along even if you change your name or your institution and ensures that you get recognition for all your research contributions, including publications, grants, peer review, and even your thesis or dissertation. Did you know that some publishers even require you to register with the ORCID ID before you can submit your publication or signup as a peer reviewer?

During this webinar with Drexel’s expert librarians, you will learn what an ORCID iD is and how you can create and curate your own profile, as well as tips and tricks for easily keeping your ORCID up to date as your research advances.

Webinar Speaker: Janice Masud-Paul, is the Liaison Librarian for Health Sciences Research at Drexel University. She provides library instruction in the College of Nursing and Health Professions, Food Science and Culinary Arts and supports the expanding research programs of health sciences faculty and graduate students.

Prior to joining the Drexel Libraries, Janice worked as an academic librarian for Old Dominion University and Lafayette College. She most recently served as the head of information technology for the Camden County Library System where she managed their IT staff and coordinated the shared integrated library management system. She is a licensed dietitian/nutritionist and holds an MLIS and an MPH from Drexel University.
