ORCID is the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. Using ORCID, you can register online for a unique author identifier, show all your publications, and link your profile through to your profiles on ResearcherID, and Scopus Author ID.
Some journals now require you to submit your ORCID as part of the process when submitting articles for publication.

Functionality to automatically update the 'work's section of your ORCiD with your publications will be enabled soon.
