Theses and Dissertations - ORCID iD

When you submit your thesis or dissertation, ProQuest gives you the option of entering an ORCID iD with your submission. While this is an optional field, we highly recommend that you use it. An ORCID iD is your own unique identifier that ensures that all your scholarly work and research is properly associated with you and is not confused with others with the same or similar name. ORCID iDs are used worldwide for manuscript submissions, grant applications, and patent applications. In addition, there are a number or tools and services that use ORCID iDs to import your works into their systems.

Adding your ORCID iD to the ProQuest form takes only a few seconds.

  • If you have an ORCID iD and know what it is, enter it into the ORCID ID box
  • If you have an ORCID iD but do not remember it, click the blue Look Up button, and you will be given a list of names similar to what you entered into the form. Find yours, and copy and paste it into the ORCID ID box in the ProQuest form.
  • If you do not have an ORCID iD, click the blue Create button, and enter the requested information: name, email address, and password. You can then enter your new ORCID iD into the ORCID ID box in the ProQuest form.
