ORCID’s vision is a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions and affiliations across disciplines, borders, and time. How can we work together to make that vision a reality? Our new Collect & Connect program is intended to help us do just that. This is the first in a series of posts where you can learn more about the program, what it means for your organization, and how you can participate.

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.

Learn how ORCID is working with current information research systems (CRIS), such as Conversis, Pure, and Symplectic Elements, which help organisations to understand and analyse their research performance by pulling together data from external resources and augmenting information from within the organisation, to provide an overview of their researchers’ body of work.

Starting this year, ORCID will hold member elections for positions on next year’s Board. This follows a bylaws change made by the Board in November 2015, and recognizes that ORCID is maturing both as a platform and an organization.

One of ORCID’s core principles is that individuals control their ORCID iD and the information attached to it. ORCID systems are designed so that nothing can be added to an individual’s ORCID record without his/her explicit consent. With an upcoming change to the ORCID API we will be strengthening user control, ensuring that individuals’ default visibility preferences apply to everything in their ORCID record. Read our post to understand how this change may affect you.
