ORCID

As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer-review process The Contemporary Physiotherapy in Practice and Education journal is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID

ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognised. We can collect ORCID iDs during the manuscript submission process and your ORCID iD then becomes part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications. If you do not already have an ORCID iD please visit ORCID homepage to learn more.
