More information about why a researcher should sign up for an ORCID

ORCID is a great system - and, as a publisher, I love it when researchers use it - but there is little/no material on the website (eg in 'for researchers' section, or in FAQ) as to why authors would be motivated to sign up... we have had comments like 'oh, it's just another academia.edu' and 'oh, it's just another research gate' when we have tried to explain... there needs to be some information we can hand to them about why this would help them further their career, or get credit for their work, or make connections, or (most importantly) help them secure research grants.

keep up the good work!
