ORCID (Open Research and Contributor ID) is a central register of unique international identifiers. It provides a transparent way of linking research activities with this identifier. It represents a permanent identity of the authors, which ensures unique identification.

The ORCID register provides the possibility to obtain an unique identifier free of charge, allows authors to manage their profile and establish contacts or search for other scientists.

ORCID retains only insensitive data, about which the author, at his discretion, decides whether he wants to publish them or not.

Academic and scientific staff of the MFF UK, students of doctoral studies registered at the MFF UK, and other publishing employees and students registered at the MFF UK (hereinafter referred to as "the authors"), have the following obligations based on the Rector's Directive no. 24/2018, Section 11, Article 1, which should meet within 2 months from the beginning of the employment or study relationship with the MFF UK:

Records of their publications that do not appear in WOS or SCOPUS will be added to ORCID in BibTeX format (e.g. from GoogleScholar or MathSciNet databases), if they are available in these formats. In this format, you can also export publications from OBD. After setting up their ORCID personal identifiers, the authors should fill all three identifiers in the OBD (see these instructions).

Charles University offers the possibility of linking the ORCID identifier and logging into the registry using a university account.

Authors have an assistant available at their disposal at the Department of Library of MFF UK in case of any problem with accomplishing the tasks required by the Rector's Directive no. 24/2018.

The contact to the assistants and faculty coordinator is available at:
