Last chance to comment on Peer Review citation data standard

Laure Haak's picture

ORCID has been working with the CASRAI Peer Review ServicesWorking Group to define a standard set of data fields to enable citation of peer review activities. The group has reviewed options for linking peer review service activities with a person identifier such as ORCID, and developed recommendations for data fields, descriptors, persistence, resolution, and citation.  The group's recommended Standard Data Profile for Peer Review Contributions is in the final stages of community review and is available for public commenting via the CASRAI Commons Workspace until 3 October. It is important that we get this right, and we would love to hear from you!

Reviewers have found the experience valuable in terms of contributing their expertise to the wider community, improving their understanding of interoperability standards for research information, and giving them an opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world.
