ORCID for MUSES authentication

MUSES web services authenticate you through your choice of independent identity providers (IdPs). One of the IdPs we support is ORCID. Read on to learn more about this open, transparent, and non-proprietary organization and how you can obtain your own ORCID iD for free.


ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your professional information — affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.

If you are a UIUC affiliate you can get an ORCID iD at ORCID@Illinois. Or, you can use the Institutional Signin to obtain one using one of many supported institutions.
