If you have an existing ORCID, you can link it to your BC ID number.
Having an ORCID allows you to import publication citations to your Faculty Annual Report. Funders, publishers, scholarly societies, fellow researchers and potential collaborators all need to be able to identify your work. Boston College needs to identify and collect comprehensive, accurate information about BC’s scholarly contributions to the world’s knowledge.
When you connect your ORCID to your BC ID number, Boston College will be added to your ORCID profile under employment. The added record will be very basic. If you prefer to give more details about your employment, such as your title, department and dates of employment, you can add a new employment record manually and delete the more basic one.
You can sign in to ORCID with yor BC credentials once you link them. On the sign in page at orcid.org, choose Institutional account, then click on the BC suggestion, if it appears, or search for it in the institution list. You will need to enter your email and ORCID password to complete this step the first time. After completion you will be able to log-in with your BC credentials. The screen shot below shows the appearance of the sign-in page.
