Springer Nature implements ORCID unique digital identifiers for books and chapters

ORCID used in book workflow to help solve author name ambiguity problems in research and scholarly communications

Springer Nature will collaborate with ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) to enable authors and editors to apply their digital identifiers to books and chapters, ensuring recognition of their work. These identifiers can be linked to the researcher's contributions to enhance scientific discovery and collaboration within the research community. Springer is the first publisher to implement the ORCID identifier in the book workflow process, ultimately providing authors with a digital identifier that distinguishes them from every other researcher. Books from Palgrave Macmillan, which are currently being integrated into SpringerLink, will also be able to use ORCID iDs.
