Add your ORCID to GEMS and always have this identifier link you and all of your work. AGU encourages all authors and reviewers to create and add an Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) to their account. It’s easy: just update your profile on an existing account or add ORCID when you create your account. Learn more about ORCID.

ORCIDS will now be required for all corresponding authors and strongly encouraged for coauthors.
AGU officially joins with seven other publishers in a commitment to include the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) for authors of all papers published in 2016. See statement https://eos.org/agu-news/agu-opens-its-journals-to-author-identifiers

All AGU journal content from 1997 to 24 months ago is freely available online. Your published paper will become fully open 24-months after publication.
