Integrating ORCID identifiers at universities and research institutions
21-22 May 2014, Chicago, Illinois, USA
ORCID hosted its biannual Outreach Meeting on May 21-22, 2014 at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Links to slides and webinar presentations from the event are provided below. You may also view the posters from the event.
We also hosted a Codefest for developers, concurrent with the Outreach Meeting.
This event featured community sharing of integration best practices by universities and professional societies, particularly highlighting the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation-funded Adoption and Integration Program projects.

ORCID integration into researcher information systems / video
The ORCID identifier has been integrated into numerous researcher information system platforms available to the research community, providing the opportunity for improved data through disambiguation and reducing the time-consuming process of maintaining up-to-date records for both individuals and organizations. This session will feature a discussion of integration points, policy issues, data flow between systems, researcher participation, discovered opportunities, improved metrics and reporting, and demonstrations by universities and vendors.
Moderator: David Baker, Executive Director, CASRAI
ORCID identifiers in repositories/ video
The ORCID identifier has been incorporated into numerous repository platforms. This session will offer a discussion of integration points, policy issues, data flow between systems, researcher participation, discovered opportunities, and demonstrations by universities, research organizations, and vendors.
Moderator: Salvatore Mele, Head of Open Access at CERN
15:30 Concurrent sessions
ORCID at professional associations
For scholarly societies, ORCID can help tie together siloed internal systems, including manuscript submission, membership management, author and reviewer databases, and conferences, improving an organizations ability to serve its members. This session will offer a discussion of integration points, policy issues, data flow between systems, researcher participation, discovered opportunities, and demonstrations by societies and vendors.
Moderator: Bernard Rous, Director of Publications, Association for Computing Machinery
ORCID identifiers in access management/ video
Universities and other research organizations have begun utilizing the ORCID identifier to manage access to repositories and research information systems. This session will feature a discussion of integration opportunities, policy and privacy issues, and demonstrations by research organizations.
Moderator: Ed Pentz, Executive Director, CrossRef
17:00 Reception and Posters
Thursday, 22 May 2014
08:00 Continental breakfast
09:00 Best practices in the promotion and creation of ORCID identifiers for faculty, staff, and students: outreach and policy / video
Institutional culture varies between universities and research institutes, necessitating a locally relevant approach to integration of ORCID identifiers. In this session, institutions will share information about their decision-making, business planning, and strategies for communications and adoption within their communities.
Moderator: Kristi Holmes, Director, Galter Health Sciences Library, Northwestern University, and Outreach Lead, VIVO
10:45 Best practices in the creation of ORCID identifiers for faculty, staff, and students: technical integration / video
Research organizations are creating ORCID iDs and integrating them into a variety of systems, from personnel databases, to directories, repositories, and university presses. In this session, organizations will share information and strategies on technical aspects of working with ORCID APIs, strategies for modifying internal systems to capture and store ORCID iDs, and interactions with other identifiers.
Moderator: Simeon Warner, Research Associate, Cornell University
12:00 Codefest reports and awarding of codefest prize
Adoption and Integration Program
Funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the ORCID Adoption and Integration Program provides external funding for universities and science and social science professional associations to integrate ORCID identifiers, supports the collaborative elicitation and documentation of use cases and open source code, and establishes a collaborative venue for disseminating best practices. Nine A&I Project Partners will be sharing about their integration projects at the Outreach Meeting.
Premier Event Sponsor
Special thanks to the University of Illinois at Chicago Graduate College and particularly to Theresa Christenson for helping us with arrangements for this event!
The ORCID Codefest 2014 took place congruent with the Outreach Meeting, at the same location, offering technical developers a chance to meet the ORCID technical team, learn about our development resources, and collaborate to create new ORCID tools.
