Nature Portfolio is committed to improving transparency in authorship. The Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) helps the scientific community achieve unambiguous attribution of all scholarly contributions.
Nature Portfolio journals now request that all authors identified as ‘corresponding authors’ create and link an ORCID with their account on our Manuscript Tracking System (MTS), prior to article acceptance. We also encourage contributing authors to associate an ORCID with their MTS account. Author ORCIDs will be displayed on the published article.
