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.

  • Blog | ORCID plans to launch affiliation module using ISNI and Ringgold Organization Identifiers


    ORCID will be launching its affiliation module this fall using ISNI unique organizational identifiers, to support the accurate and persistent identification of researcher institutional affiliations. ISNI and Ringgold are currently collaborating to crosswalk Ringgold organizational identifiers with ISNI identifiers. ORCID plans to work through Ringgold to obtain organizational identifiers for public use in the ORCID registry, including the Ringgold Institutional Identifier, the ISNI number, Institution Name, location data, URL and alternative name. This important development will enable data mapping between different organizations and also the data systems within those organizations.

  • Blog | Connecting research datasets and researchers: ORCID use cases and integrations


    Datasets are an important output and resource for researchers of all disciplines.  For the community to effectively access and re-use datasets, an understanding of data storage and attribution is fundamental. From that understanding flows the development and use of standard data exchange protocols. How are ORCID identifers being embedded into data respository workflows? In addition to a number of recent integrations by figshare, ANDS, and ODIN, Dryad is starting work to pilot use of ORCID identifiers in DSpace, discussed at the recent OAI8 DSpace User Meeting hosted by @mire.

  • Blog | ORCID awarded grant from Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to support university and professional society integration of persistent identifiers


    ORCID announces a new project aimed at encouraging the adoption and integration of persistent researcher identifiers by research universities and scientific and social science professional associations.  Funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, this project will provide external funding and personalized outreach and technical support to participating organizations. The goal of this program is to catalyze broader community adoption by standardizing and streamlining the ORCID identifier integration process, collecting and documenting use cases, developing open source code samples, and providing case studies of working integrations.  The program will disseminate use cases and integration best practices through an Outreach meeting and CodeFest, to be held in Chicago in May 2014.  Up to 10 grants of $15,000-$20,000 each are available. More information on the program and the RFP are available at https://orcid.org/content/rfp-2013-06-orcid-id-adoption-and-integration-program. Proposals are due by August 31, 2013.
