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.

    2017-12-20

    In 2017, we made progress on several fronts.  We welcomed almost 200 new members, including new consortia in Canada, South Africa, Norway, and the US.  We have over 4 million registered users.  We nurtured working groups on ORCID in Books, User Facilities, and Organization Identifiers.

  • Blog | Using Identifiers to Capture and Expose Facilities Use

    2017-12-07

    User facilities are specialized government-sponsored research infrastructure, such as labs, collections, field stations, or large equipment, that are available for researchers’ use to advance scientific or technical knowledge. Researchers compete for access but do not consistently acknowledge use of facilities when they publish datasets or research findings, making it difficult to assess the scientific impact of these public investments. Recently several facilities have begun to explore innovative approaches to these challenges, including adoption of ORCID.
