The RSC, the Publications Division of the ACS, and Wiley became signatories to the ORCID® Open Letter. This means, RSC, ACS, and Wiley will collect ORCID iDs as part of the journal manuscript submission process and display them in the articles. ORCID® is a not-for-profit organization; ORCID iDs are unique and persistent identifier that distinguish one researcher from every other researcher and attribute each published work to the correct researcher.

The publishers automatically deposit publications to CrossRef which will update the authors' ORCID® profiles. Authors have to grant permission and then will benefit from these automated linkages between their ORCID® record and unique identifiers embedded within their published research articles.
