One of the highlights of our first consortia workshop was the opportunity to recognize the great work that our consortia partners have been doing to promote ORCID adoption in their region. Here we share the awards made to five consortia who have gone above and beyond in their support for ORCID.

Happy New Year! What are our resolutions for the new year? Implementing the first phase of our strategic plan, which in 2018 focus on funders and funding workflows: make it easier for researchers to share information, ORBIT the world with funders, build out our data model to support affiliation assertions, and enable auto-population of standard fields on funding application forms. Join us on the journey!

In 2017, we made progress on several fronts. We welcomed almost 200 new members, including new consortia in Canada, South Africa, Norway, and the US. We have over 4 million registered users. We nurtured working groups on ORCID in Books, User Facilities, and Organization Identifiers. And as always, we released new features and were integrated into many more workflows, making life just that much better for researchers.

User facilities are specialized government-sponsored research infrastructure, such as labs, collections, field stations, or large equipment, that are available for researchers’ use to advance scientific or technical knowledge. Researchers compete for access but do not consistently acknowledge use of facilities when they publish datasets or research findings, making it difficult to assess the scientific impact of these public investments. Recently several facilities have begun to explore innovative approaches to these challenges, including adoption of ORCID.

About one year ago, Crossref, DataCite and ORCID announced a joint initiative to launch and sustain an open, independent, non-profit organization identifier registry to facilitate the disambiguation of researcher affiliations. Today we publish governance recommendations and product principles and requirements for the creation of an open organization identifier registry and invite community feedback.
