Future Science Group is pleased to be a Member Organization of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID, underlining our commitment to transparency and discoverability for our authors.
What is ORCID?
ORCID provides researchers with a unique identifier – an ORCID iD – plus a mechanism for linking their research outputs and activities to their ORCID iD.
An ORCID iD is a unique and persistent digital identifier that ensures your work is correctly associated with you, regardless of whether your name is similar to (or the same as!) another individual, or if your name changes.
ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions and other research-related services.
Why register? Your ORCID iD:
Distinguishes you and ensures your research outputs and activities are correctly attributed to you
Reliably and easily connects you with your contributions and affiliations
Reduces form-filling: you enter data once, have it reused often
Improves recognition and discoverability for you and your research outputs
Is interoperable: it works with many institutions, funders, and publishers
Is persistent: you can use it throughout your research career

Connect your ORCID iD to Future Science Group
Future Science Group’s submission system, ScholarOne, supports ORCID, giving you the option to include an ORCID iD when you submit a manuscript to us.
If you already have an ORCID iD, simply associate this when creating your account on ScholarOne. Alternatively, if you have yet to register for an ORCID iD, click the appropriate link to create one:
By providing an ORCID iD during the submission process, it can then be incorporated by the journal into your accepted article’s metadata, ensuring your work is appropriately attributed to you and that your ORCID record is updated accordingly.
Your ORCID iD will also be published within the article so that readers can link to your public ORCID profile, and from there to your other work.
