October 16th is the fifth anniversary of ORCID’s launch and we can’t wait to start  the celebrations!

What a long way we have come! We are really excited to be reaching this milestone supported by more than 700 members from all disciplines and regions, many working group participants, a very engaged Board, and a fantastic dedicated ORCID team.  Not to mention all the researchers, associations, funders, publishers, research institutions, vendors and others  who continue to help us make the research world a better place, one persistent identifier at a time.

We couldn’t have done it without your support and to say thank you we are delighted to share a special [email protected] video, with contributions from our staff and the community . We hope you like it!

To get you in the mood for partying, we’ve also created an [email protected] Playlist with songs about identity, persistence, and uniqueness!

Look out for more birthday celebrations on the day itself, and please share your ORCID pictures, songs, anecdotes, and birthday wishes with everyone on Twitter using  the hashtag #ORCID5.

Please join us in celebrating [email protected] and let’s get this party started!
