Why do we need ORCID?

Why is it important for an academic institution whose researchers to hold an "identity card"?

Academic institutions receive budgeting, among other things, by measuring

the number of scientific publications of their researchers.

Quotes from the researchers' reports show the degree of impact

of an academic institution in the scientific community.

In addition, the importance of this issue is now of considerable importance

to the visibility of an academic institution.

In order to count quotes and assign them precisely to the author and institution to which he belongs,

and to avoid errors resulting from various instances of the name of the institution and the author, using the built-in system.

The Hebrew University chose ORCID for this purpose.
