  • Blog | New Functionality Fridays: Enhanced Public API

    2014-12-05

    Today we continue our new functionality Friday series where we focus on highly-requested items from our iDeas Forum. Thanks again for providing so many great ideas! This post includes information on the release of our sixth end-of-the-year goody: Enhanced Public API.

    As part of our open source commitment, ORCID has provided a free public API (Application Programming Interface) since our launch in 2012. With our new enhanced public API, it is now possible for any system (including those from organizations that are not ORCID members) to not only include your ORCID iD, but to make this addition in an authenticated way. This means that you won't have to remember your ORCID iD to share it with another system, nor will you have to worry about typos or missed numbers, ensuring data quality. This reliable inclusion of your ORCID iD allows your name, your iD, and your data to travel as a package. In short, it assures trust in the data. In addition, systems can even use this API enhancement to enable you to sign in to their systems using your ORCID credentials.

    [由中科院文献情报中心报道,]

    对中国科研人员来说,姓名歧义是一个严重问题。不仅因为许多学者拥有一样的姓,那些在英文期刊上发表文章的研究人员也需要解决与研究活动相关的名字的音译和多版本问题。而且,研究人员用中文发表的研究成果很难在英文搜索界面可见和被发现。

  • Blog | iAuthor and ORCID: Supporting International Identifiers for Chinese Researchers at the National Science Library of the Chinese Academies of Sciences

    2014-12-03

    Name ambiguity is a serious issue for Chinese researchers.  Not only do many share a common surname, those researchers who publish in English-language journals have to contend with transliteration issues and multiple versions of their name being associated with their research activities.  Similarly, researchers who publish in Chinese have a difficult time making their research works visible and discoverable in English-language search interfaces. The National Science Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has decided to address these issues head-on, by developing the iAuthor platform, as an easy Chinese frontgate to register for an ORCID identifier and to interoperate with Chinese journals, CSCD and others. On October 28, the NSL formally launched the iAuthor service. (读这篇文章在中国)

  • Blog | New Functionality Friday - Auto update your ORCID Record

    2014-11-21

    Today we continue our New Functionality Friday series where we focusing on highly-requested items from our iDeas Forum. This post includes the fourth end-of-the-year goody that we recently released: Auto update of your ORCID record. This functionality was requested in at least five different iDeas submitted to us, and has been the topic of many conversations at our outreach meetings and elsewhere.

    Updating an ORCID record automatically requires two pieces: 1) providing our member organizations the ability to request long-lasting access permission from ORCID record holders, and 2) members implementing applications and workflows to update ORCID record information. We have now enabled long-lasting access permission; read the post to learn more about some of the organizations implementing automatic updates of ORCID records.
