At its core, ORCID enables researchers to make connections between themselves and their activities and affiliations. By making the source of these connections transparent, we aim to ensure trust through traceability. We are therefore launching the Research Information Platform Engagement (RIPEN) project, to engage with the community to streamline the assertion process and make it more broadly accessible for everyone.
