Register for an ORCID iD

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

National Research Foundation (NRF) requires all staff and students who received NRF funding in the past, those who are current recipients and all who intend to apply for NRF funding in future.
Please log on to and register for an ORCID ID. Please send the ORCID ID to Ms Noluvuyo Zengethwa at by Friday, 20 April 2018.
