ORCID is an open standard used to uniquely identify manuscript contributors. EM enables ORCID integration at manuscript submission and during peer review.
In some cases, the ORCID number can be directly input (and verified) by the individual owner of the ORCID. However, in peer review, there are many instances in which users need to enter other people’s ORCID numbers. For example, an author may need to enter ORCID numbers for co-authors. In this instance, EM provides a convenient “fetch” link so that the correct ORCID number can be identified and selected from the ORCID database.
