[Objective] To help Chinese researchers acquire an ORCID ID and manage academic achievements. [Context] ORCID aims to solve the name ambiguity problem in research and scholarly communications, which also troubles Chinese academic circles in a long time. Collaborating with ORCID, to meet the needs of Chinese researcher's persistent unique identifier. [Methods] Through the ORCID API, help Chinese researchers acquire an ORCID ID. Integrated and linked with mutiple third-party systems such as CAS IR, CSCD, Web of Science, show scientific research achievements and create an academic profile automatically. [Results] Register a unique ORCID identifier for researcher. Researchers could manage their personal information and scientific outputs, and synchronize these data with ORCID. [Conclusions] A large number of scientific research institution and universtity researchers are taking use of iAuthor to obtain ORCID IDs, which lays a good fundation for solving the name ambiguity problem.
