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

    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.

    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.
