Dear ASA Members,
I'm writing to explain a change with regards to the submission process at PASA. From 31 May, Cambridge University Press, our publisher, will require corresponding authors to provide their ORCID iD when submitting an article. This change has been endorsed by the ASA Council.

ORCID provides a unique identifier for researchers and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript submission and grant applications, offers the following benefits:

1. Discoverability: ORCID increases the discoverability of your publications, by enabling smarter publisher systems and by helping readers to reliably find work that you’ve authored.

2. Convenience: As more organisations use ORCID, providing your iD or using it to register for services will automatically link activities to your ORCID record, and will enable you to share this information with other systems and platforms, saving you re-keying information multiple times.

3. Keeping track: Your ORCID record is a neat place to store and (if you choose) share validated information about your research activities and affiliations.

If you don’t already have an iD, you’ll need to create one if you decide to submit a manuscript to PASA. You can register for one directly from your user account on ScholarOne or via https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/eMW-CE8kz9tXRqowiNtwUy?domain=orcid.org<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/eMW-CE8kz9tXRqowiNtwUy?domain=orcid.org>. In each case, follow the on-screen instructions. If you already have an iD, you can link it to your ScholarOne account after logging in as normal.

If you are a co-author on an article and would like to associate your ORCID iD with the article, you will need to provide us with your email address during submission so that we can collect the iD from you once the article enters production.

Please note you will still be able to access your account using your normal username and password, but to submit a paper to PASA after 31 May, you must have an ORCID.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Best wishes,

Professor Melanie Johnston-Hollitt
