"We provide this service to help people find information…" - currently, that is hard to do because I have to individually look at each record to see if it is the individual that I'm looking for.

    Thanks for your suggestion. We’ll put it under review to our team.

    Please note that we generally do not recommend searching to find researchers’ ORCID iDs. Rather, we recommend asking them to provide their ORCID iD.

    For systems, this would be by requesting that researchers sign into ORCID to provide their ORCID iD via authentication.

    For individuals, this would be by asking the researcher directly for their ORCID iD.

    Warm regards,
    The ORCID Team
