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.

    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.

    Helping researchers to get recognition for their many contributions - including their peer review actvities - is something we care deeply about at ORCID.

We are delighted to share these examples of how the organizations involved in planning PRW are currently recognizing review, as well as some of their plans for the future.
