ORCID is a community effort. On these news pages we provide updates on policy, outreach, and technical developments. You may subscribe to our blog, follow us on Twitter @ORCID_Org, or check our Trello boards for the status of fixes and features.

We encourage community involvement. The success of ORCID depends upon it! You may enter and vote on ideas for development on our iDeas Forum, check our Knowledge Base for technical documentation, or contact us with questions.
