In 2014 our goals were to increase the adoption and integration of ORCID in the university community, expand our international reach, and complete the first phase of the ORCID Registry feature set.  How did we do?

Round the World in 25 days: Different Countries, Shared Problems

Laure Haak's picture

The latest ORCID road-trip involved visits to eight countries, six languages, ten airports, and fourteen plane tickets. Through it all, an infrastructure of shared terms and similar processes for checking in, airport security and customs, boarding, getting luggage enabled a seamless journey. In an analagous way, ORCID is a part of the plumbing for scholarly communications.  Regardless of your institution or language, ORCID enables shared terms and processes for collecting your name in manuscripts, grants, datasets, education, and employment, ensuring your research and scholarly contributions are attributable and discoverable.

During the course of my travels, I was struck by how similar the conversations were across nations, sectors, and disciplines.  The idea that integration of ORCID improves visibility of individual researchers; supports discovery and exposure of local scholarly works to an international community; respects local scholarly culture and contexts; and enables improved research reporting.  And, the shared understanding that, for the benefits of ORCID to be realized, the research community needs to work together.

对中国科研人员来说,姓名歧义是一个严重问题。不仅因为许多学者拥有一样的姓,那些在英文期刊上发表文章的研究人员也需要解决与研究活动相关的名字的音译和多版本问题。而且,研究人员用中文发表的研究成果很难在英文搜索界面可见和被发现。

iAuthor and ORCID: Supporting International Identifiers for Chinese Researchers at the National Science Library of the Chinese Academies of Sciences

Laure Haak's picture

Name ambiguity is a serious issue for Chinese researchers.  Not only do many share a common surname, those researchers who publish in English-language journals have to contend with transliteration issues and multiple versions of their name being associated with their research activities.  Similarly, researchers who publish in Chinese have a difficult time making their research works visible and discoverable in English-language search interfaces. The National Science Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has decided to address these issues head-on, by developing the iAuthor platform, as an easy Chinese frontgate to register for an ORCID identifier and to interoperate with Chinese journals, CSCD and others. On October 28, the NSL formally launched the iAuthor service. (读这篇文章在中国)
