ORCID implementation at CPUT

If you already have an ORCID iD, please use your account and connect your iD with your CPUT account. (It is advised to use your e-mail address to create your iD). 

Many publishers have implemented ORCID iD’s in the publishing process and researchers are required to register for ORCID iD’s before they submit manuscripts. Researcher ID information integrates with the CPUT staff account directory and is ORCID compliant. The integration of research information systems or platforms will make the submission, grant application, evaluation and ratings more seamless for CPUT researchers. 


Please contact your faculty librarian if you have any questions about ORCID.
