ORCID for corresponding authors
As part of our efforts to improve transparency in authorship, we ask all corresponding authors of accepted papers to provide their Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) ID, before submitting the final version of the manuscript.
To do this, the corresponding author will need to:
- Log in using this link - Submit manuscript
- Click ‘Modify My Springer Nature Account’
- Under the ‘Personal Profile’ tab, click ‘Create/link an Open Researcher Contributor ID (ORCID)’
If you have an ORCID account, enter your ORCID email and password.
If you don’t have an ORCID account, you can create one at this stage.
Non-corresponding authors do not have to link their ORCID but are encouraged to do so.
Linking ORCID and SpringerNature accounts can be done at any time prior to acceptance.
Please note that it is not possible to add/modify ORCID details at proof stage.
