The ORCID Open Letter: One Year On

In January 2016, a group of eight associations and publishers led by eLife, PLOS, and The Royal Society, launched an open letter committing their organizations to requiring ORCID iDs for (at a minimum) corresponding authors of accepted papers and inviting other organizations to do the same. One year on, how successful has this initiative been?

Three Major Publishers Sign the ORCID Open Letter

In January 2016, eight publishers signed an open letter committing their organizations to requiring ORCID iDs for journal authors. Importantly, they also committed to adopting our best practices when implementing this requirement, to ensure that it would benefit their authors, their organizations, and the wider scholarly community. This includes collecting validated ORCID iDs to ensure the correct iD is associated with the author, displaying iDs in articles to signal support for ORCID, and including ORCID iDs with the metadata sent to Crossref to support auto-update of authors’ ORCID records when their article publishes. On November 28, their efforts received a significant boost when the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and Wiley signed the letter.
