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 at the American Chemical Society Meeting

    2014-08-19

    ORCID attended the 248th national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in San Francisco in August.  ACS is both an ORCID sponsor and member organization, and it now requests ORCID identifiers during journal manuscript submission. We met with a number of the nearly 15,000 scientists and students who participated in this event at our exhibitor booth.

  • Blog | A recipe for trust

    2014-07-09

    As ORCID interoperates with more partners and data systems, it becomes more clear that trust works both ways: it must be mutual. Without trust in the provenance, persistence, and uniqueness of digital identifiers, the services and tools that the world of research increasingly relies on cannot operate.

  • Blog | Save the date for Autumn ORCID Outreach Meeting in Tokyo

    2014-06-11

    Please save the date for our next ORCID Outreach Meeting, which will be held on 4 November 2014 at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan. We are looking forward to learning more about ORCID adoption in Asia and Pacific Rim countries from integrators, institutional leaders, national stakeholders, and researchers.

    ORCID アウトリーチ・ミーティングが、国立情報学研究所の協力のもと、2014 年 11 月 4 日に東京で開催されます。ORCID がアジア太平洋地域の国々で、インテグレーター、研究機関、国の機関や研究者にどのように広がっているかを学ぶ良い機会になることを願っています。

  • Blog | ORCID Outreach Meeting Highlights Integrations, Use Cases, and Outreach at Universities and Professional Societies

    2014-06-03

    On May 21-22, 2014 ORCID held its twelfth bi-annual Outreach Meeting, hosted by the University of Illinois in Chicago. Slides and webinar recordings and posters from the event are now available online. This outreach meeting showcased the integrations, use cases, and outreach efforts at universities and professional societies, including nine Adoption and Integration partner institutions that were supported by a grant to ORCID from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The variety and depth of integration work being carried out by the community was impressive, demonstrating significant progress implementing ORCID identifiers across campus systems. Nearly 60 universities are now ORCID members

  • Blog | Plans for Enabling Multiple Assertions in the ORCID Registry

    2014-06-02

    ​ORCID provides an open Registry of unique researcher identifiers, and we work collaboratively with the research community to enable linkages between these identifiers and other identifier schemes and systems.  The ORCID Registry stores metadata that indicates the source of information (for example, the individual or a search and link wizard). In June 2013, ORCID formed the Multiple Assertions Working Group (MAWG), to explore the use cases, implications, processes and policies for enabling and exposing assertions from third parties. For example, how might ORCID handle information about connections between ORCID iDs and related work or researcher activities that are made by someone other than the researcher, usually an organization. The MAWG, chaired by Simeon Warner of Cornell University, recently finalized their recommendations, and today we announce our plans to enable verification of these linkages by third-parties, to enhance trust and value for researchers and the community.

  • Blog | Jisc and ARMA announce ORCID Pilot Project participants

    2014-05-19

    On 8 May, Jisc and ARMA co-hosted a kickoff meeting for their ORCID pilot project. The goal of the project is to explore opportunities and challenges in integrating ORCID identifiers into research management systems and workflows at higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK. The kickoff meeting provided an opportunity for HEIs to present their plans and identify connections with other project participants. Over the course of the project, each participating HEI is tasked with developing use cases, blogging on their experiences, and contributing to a business case appraising options for a nation-wide implementation of ORCID.  Read on for more on the project participants and their plans,

  • Blog | Introducing Josh Brown: ORCID EU Communications Manager

  • Blog | Help us Beta-test the new ORCID Public Authentication API

    2014-04-29

    Organizations are using a variety of approaches to integrate ORCID iDs into their systems and workflows. We love the variety, and have built our API to support evolving community needs. We have found some organizations are asking users to type in their iD, and are concerned about both data quality and lack of an authenticated link between the user and the identifier. We decided there had to be a better way, and embarked on an initiative to make available a Public API that supports authentication.

    We are at a stage in development of this new Public API where we are seeking developers interested in becoming Beta users. If you would like to get an early peek at this API in exchange for providing us with feedback, please fill out the Beta Tester request form to get started. While we provide documentation a user forum, and links to helpful tools to aid in your integration, we will not provide individualized support for this free feature. Beta testers will help us ensure that the feature is easy to use and the documentation is complete.
