New sign in page​From today, when you sign into ORCID, you will be presented with several options. As always you will be able to enter your email address or ORCID iD along with your ORCID password to gain access to your account. But we now also allow access via your Facebook, Google, or institutional account with a supported institution.

ORCID Trust

Today we outline a program that we are calling ORCID Trust, and are opening an invitation to data security and privacy experts to help us vet the program before we formally roll it out.

ORCID Sign-in with options to sign in using institution, facebook or google credentials​Today we are announcing with SURF an agreement that will make the ORCID Registry available via SURFconext. This arrangement will enable Dutch researchers to access the registry using the same credentials they use to log into their university. As SURFconext is connected to eduGAIN, access to the Registry via institutional login credentials also will be available to researchers around the world at universities using eduGAIN. The work was supported by two EC funded projects, AARC and THOR.

Contributor Role Badges

Project CRedIT was launched in 2012 to help researchers get recognition for all their contributions to a research project - from securing funding, through carrying out the research, to writing up the results for publication. Learn how ORCID, Mozilla Science Labs, and others are making the Project CRedIT vision a reality.

Balancing innovation and stability in the ORCID API

I’m often asked how ORCID manages to continually update the Registry to add new features, but still support the many enterprise-level systems owned and operated by ORCID Member organizations that use our APIs. The bottom line answer is flexibility. But, of course, it a bit more involved than that. Read this post to learn more about our process.

ORCID member support: Improving on excellence

At every conference we go to - every workshop, every presentation - we will invariably get a comment about our support team. It usually goes something like this: "Your support team is so responsive! They get back to me right away, and thoroughly address my question. I really feel that ORCID is listening to my concerns." As a community driven organization, it is crucial that we have an excellent support team.  Your feedback is important to us, to ensure we are on track. Thank you, to all who have taken the time to send us your feedback on the responsiveness, thoroughness, and competency of our member services team, and kudos to Catalina Wilmers and Liz Krznarich.   

So, how do we make a good thing even better? Our latest innovation, the Member Support Center, at members.orcid.org.  Designed as a one-stop shop for ORCID implementation, the member support center combines our existing technical documentation with sector-specific workflow guides and planning and communication resources. In this post, I describe some of my favorite things about it.
