Q: ORCID accounts for MIT Scholars
ORCID is an ID used to link researchers to their research-related items and funding programs. MIT is integrating ORCIDs into MIT systems and is in the process of distributing ORCID IDs to all faculty, followed by postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and other professional staff.
You can find more information about MIT's plan in the MIT Faculty newsletter:
