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.

Helping researchers to get recognition for their many contributions - including their peer review actvities - is something we care deeply about at ORCID. It's also the theme for Peer Review Week 2016, which runs from September 19-25. We are delighted to share these examples of how the organizations involved in planning PRW are currently recognizing review, as well as some of their plans for the future.
