For 2015 we had ambitious goals: continue to build our membership, double registry users to two million researchers, support adoption by streamlining implementation processes, and increase the international reach of ORCID. How did we do?

ORCID’s commitment to the research community is what drives our technical development and policy decisions. Following the successful introduction of an opt-in registration workflow, we are now phasing out support for our opt-out batch registration process. Find out more about why, and how we will be supporting organizations through the transition.

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.

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
