I suggest that...

ORCID will solve the "Maiden Name-Married Name conflict"

Hello there,

The problem with taking your loved one's name, and "giving up" your previous publications concerns many people (especially woman, but not only).

It would be wonderful if using ORCID ID a person can change her/his publication name easily, and link all relevant manuscripts together.
The aim is to make sure that in a simple Google or Pubmed search other people could see all the work you have done regardless of your marital status...

Do you think this can be made possible?

Thanks!

    Thank you for your iDea.

    The goal of ORCID is to uniquely identify you, regardless of which name you are using at the time of your publication. When you connect your ORCID iD to a publication submission, funding application, peer review, etc., then your ORCID iD is embedded in that item’s metadata and will be a method of connecting your contribution so that it is based on your singular identifier, which would not change, rather than your name, which could change.

    In addition, you can specify multiple versions of your name, including a marital name, or your name in other scripts, on your ORCID record in order to disambiguate your identity. That way if someone reads your ORCID record, they will find multiple versions of your name, potentially including the version(s) used on your past publications or affiliations.

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team
