VMU is a member of ORCID
Vytautas Magnus University became a member of the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) organization. It is a non-profit organization that aims to create a permanent registry of researchers’ unique identifiers and a way to link these identifiers to research activities and outputs (articles, monographs, books, datasets, programs, reviews, patents, grants, researcher profiles and other research-related information). By assigning unique identifiers to authors, the aim is to solve the problems of name ambiguity in scientific research, to ensure an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID, other personal identification systems and research objects.
VDU ORCID membership will facilitate ORCID registration, authentication to the VMU research management system (VDU CRIS) with ORCID logins, synchronization, editing, and updating of the researcher’s ORCID record information with the VMU CRIS researcher profile. This will facilitate the administration of research production and activities, the preparation of reports, the evaluation of research production and will also improve the international visibility of the University’s researchers.
