CITI Allows Users to Link ORCID iD to CITI Account – November 2022

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), UMaine’s online research training platform, now allows users to link an ORCID iD directly with their CITI account. For guidance on how to access CITI and link your ORCID iD to your CITI account, please see Instructions for CITI Training (Word).

According to CITI, an ORCID iD is:

“…a permanent numeric identifier that individuals own and control, which provides a way to distinguish themselves uniquely from other researchers and scholars. ORCID IDs are often used in systems and platforms from grant applications to manuscript submissions, and are increasingly required by funders, publishers, data repositories, and other research workflows.”

To learn more about ORCID iD, please visit the ORCiD website.


Please note: Creating an ORCID iD and linking it to your CITI account is not required by the University of Maine.
