Research Funders and ORCID: New members, mandates, and platforms

Laure Haak's picture

The funding community has taken huge strides in adopting ORCID.  This year, we welcomed seven new research funders as members; mandates were announced by the Wellcome Trust and NIHR (UK), FWF (Austria), and the Department of Transportation (US); and several funder platforms launched ORCID implementations. In common is a shared desire to reduce the  reporting burden on researchers by making information flow more easily between systems.

Auto-Update Has Arrived! ORCID Records Move to the Next Level

Laure Haak's picture

Since ORCID’s inception, our key goal has been to unambiguously identify researchers and provide tools to automate the connection between researchers and their works.  We are taking a big step towards achieving this goal today, with the launch of Auto-Update functionality in collaboration with Crossref and DataCite. Starting today, an individual who uses their ORCID iD when they submit a manuscript or dataset, can have their ORCID record automatically updated when their work is published.

Peer review is an essential component of the research and scholarly lifecycle.  And yet, researcher peer review activities are rarely acknowledged as a fundamental contribution to research.  At the same time, the need to encourage more researchers to participate in peer review is bumping into a growing desire to find ways to build more trust into the process.  http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayJournal?jid=RAP
