Our Journal strongly recommends that all authors submitting a paper register an account with Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID). This registration provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that a researcher owns and that distinguishes them from every other researcher. Changes of the name, affiliation, or research area do not affect the discoverability of an author’s past work.

The ORCID identifier(s) should be added to the author(s) data upon submission (in the bio-bibliography file) and will be published alongside the camera-ready paper (see style sheet)

Registration is free at https://orcid.org/register.   You register only once and can use your ORCID iD permanently.
