Joining the ORCID Consortium


Membership of the South African ORCID consortium is open to South African public universities, statutory research councils & other government research agencies, private higher educational institutions, funding agencies, and other non-profits supporting research and education.

Eligible organisations can join the South African ORCID consortium by completing and returning a membership application.

Note that, as a condition of TENET's tax registration, profit-making organisations (including private higher education institutions registered as for-profit companies) are specifically precluded from joining the Consortium. Such organisations are encouraged to join ORCID as a direct member instead.
