ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your professional information and share your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors.

SSRN Postings:

The Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the dissemination of scholarly works in the social sciences. Many law faculty use SSRN to deposit law review articles and book chapters pre- or post-publishing in order to gain greater visibility for their scholarship. Faculty wishing to deposit their working and accepted papers and book chapters in SSRN can submit these materials themselves at Creating an account is free and the submissions process is very simple. For faculty who would like assistance with the submissions process, please contact Valeri Craigle ( who can walk you through the process or submit materials on your behalf.
