The Ghent University Academic Bibliography provides an overview of scientific publications by UGent researchers. ORCID provides a persistent identifier that will distinguish you from other researchers throughout your scholarly career. Linking your ORCID iD to your UGent Account is important to facilitate research workflows. Over time, ORCID will become an integral part of GISMO (the research information system).
