Q. Is it compulsory for me to have an ORCID iD?
NTU is moving towards the use of your ORCID records as an automatic source for your list of research publications and other outputs such as creative works, starting with NTU professors. The local research funding agencies in Singapore and many other countries require ORCID iDs for grant applications. It is to your own benefit to have your ORCID record ready as a CV which you can use anytime and anywhere, regardless of which organization you work for. Hence, you are strongly recommended to create one if you don’t have one yet. Once you have an ORCID iD, set the configuration to ensure as much auto-updates as possible for your new publications including published research data in your ORCID record.
