In early December, The Royal Society announced that it would be requiring contributing authors to have an ORCID iD in order to publish in their journals from January 1, 2016. Now, they and several other publishers have signed an open letter committing to requiring ORCID iDs during 2016 - and are calling on others to follow suit.

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.
