Organization identifier project: A way forward

It is a natural fit for ORCID to be involved in conversations about organization identifiers.  We are a major stakeholder in this space.  Working jointly with Crossref and DataCite, we have developed a set of working papers and now call for a Working Group to move an effort forward to stand up a community-based organization identifier registry.  These papers will be open for feedback until mid-November after which a Working Group will be established to take on responsibility for the project.

Well over half the respondents to our 2015 survey indicated that they use their ORCID iD in publishing workflows, but challenges remain for integrating ORCID fully into the publication process. We've been working with some of our members to identify and improve community awareness of effective metadata management practices in publishing.  This post summarizes the paper we presented at JATSCON 2016 on the topic.
