In 2008, UPV published the Rules for publishing scientific results at Universidad Politécnica de Valencia which are mandatory for all university staff.
To promote visibility of publications, scientific identifiers have appeared, including ORCID, Researcher ID, ScopusID and Google Scholar Citations.
ORCID is an initiative to introduce a universal, unique, persistent identifier for scientists and academics. It guarantees complete, correct and reliable attribution of their research activities.
Universitat Politècnica de València is committed to establishing ORCID for all teaching and research staff because, in addition to eliminating ambiguities and improving visibility and impact, it is required by a growing number of funding agencies and scientific publishers, Nature, Elsevier, Wiley, etc. At the Library we can help you get your ORCID.
