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.

    The ORCID Registry will go live in October, 2012.  At that time, individuals may register for a persistent ORCID ID and manage their ORCID record. In addition to the public Registry, included in the October release will be a public Application Programming Interface (API); and for members an authenticated API to create, edit, and view information stored in the ORCID Registry.  During the pre-launch phase we are working with institutions, publishers, manuscript tracking vendors, and funding bodies to ensure effective integration of ORCIDs into a variety of critical research workflows.
