About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Do You Have Your ORCID Identifier Yet?

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), established in 2010, is a non-profit effort to maintain a registry of persistent 16-digit unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. ORCID establishes linkages between researchers and scholars and their publications/research activities through integration in research workflows such as manuscript and grant submissions, and information platforms, ensuring that their work is associated with the correct person.

Used By:

  • Databases (Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science, etc.)        
  • Publishers (Elsevier, PLoS, Nature, etc.)
  • Publishing Platforms (ScholarONE)
  • Professional Societies (ACS, IEEE, AAAS, etc.)
  • Funding Agencies (NIH, CERN, etc.)
  • Software/Platforms (Altmetric, FigShare, CrossRef, etc.)
  • Author Identifier Systems (Scopus Author ID, ResearcherID, LinkedIn, etc.)

Why Should You Have an ORCID Identifier?

Your name is key to establishing a unique public profile throughout your research and academic career for publications and research activities. But if your name is a common name or if you have changed your name, or if you are affiliated with several organizations over your career, there may be multiple name variants associated with your publications and research activities. ORCID provides a universal, non-proprietary solution by linking your publications/research activities to you. Registering for an ORCID identifier helps to promote discoverability among multiple information platforms and workflows as well as establishing a unique presence for researchers and scholars, regardless of name variants or affiliation history.

How to Obtain an ORCID Identifier

Registration for the ORCID identifier is free and privacy settings are controlled by the individual. To register, complete a short registration form and select Register.  To populate your ORCID Works section, select Scopus from the “Link Tools” list to automatically add works: Linking Your ORCID and Scopus Author ID.
