A QR Code is a machine-readable graphic that contains information, typically a website URL. Your ORCID iD QR Code is unique to you, and it links to your public ORCID record.
We’ve recently released a new user interface for the https://orcid.org/my-orcid webpage. This new interface currently doesn’t contain the direct link to the QR code feature, as this feature will be moving to the Account Settings page. Development for the new Account Settings page will be completed at a later date.
Follow these steps to create your ORCID iD QR code in the meantime:
Sign in at https://orcid.org/qr-code
On the new page, select Click to download your QR code
You will obtain your ORCID iD QR code containing your public record URL. Anyone who scans it with a QR Code reader such as an app on your mobile phone, will be sent to your public ORCID record.
In addition, it is also possible to create stickers and other items with your ORCID iD QR code on it, from services such as https://www.zazzle.de.
