ORCID in 2017: The Directors' Cut

Laure Haak's picture

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.

 

Using Identifiers to Capture and Expose Facilities Use

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.
