Today ORCID turns 2. We have grown so much over the last two years and are close to 1,000,000 active ORCID iDs. Our membership base, site, resources, and API features have grown and developed far beyond our initial expectations, largely thanks to the encouragement and support from the community. Thank you!
With this anniversary, we also announce the release of our second annual public data file. This file contains a snapshot of all public data in the ORCID Registry associated with an ORCID record that was created or claimed by an individual. We publish this file once per year under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal public domain dedication. This means that, to the extent possible under law, ORCID has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to the Public Data File.
