CBUA: Consorcio de Bibliotecas Universitarias de Andalucía (Consortium of Andalusian University Libraries) is ORCID’s newest consortium member.  The CBUA ORCID initiative is led by the University of Sevilla, and aims to provide facilities to register researchers at the nine participating universities and to integrate ORCID identifiers into institutional repositories and institutional and regional research information systems (CRIS).  The CBUA have launched a Webpage that provides information on the initiative in Spanish.

Denmark adopts ORCID! A Consortium approach to ORCID implementation.

Laure Haak's picture

Denmark’s universities and research institutions all have their own CRIS (current research information system) with extensive information on their researchers and research output. Information on publications are harvested on a national basis to create a national research dissemination and promotion site. This also supports the calculation of the national bibliographic indicator, one of the comparative measures used by the government to determine the funding of universities.

Laure Haak's picture

On 8 May, Jisc and ARMA co-hosted a kickoff meeting for their ORCID pilot project. The goal of the project is to explore opportunities and challenges in integrating ORCID identifiers into research management systems and workflows at higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK. The kickoff meeting provided an opportunity for HEIs to present their plans and identify connections with other project participants. Over the course of the project, each participating HEI is tasked with developing use cases, blogging on their experiences, and contributing to a business case appraising options for a nation-wide implementation of ORCID.  Read on for more on the project participants and their plans,

Last spring, a broad group of UK higher education sector bodies, funders and professional associations signed a joint statement expressing their support for the ORCID initiative. Now, HESA has integrated ORCID identifiers into its Student Record, and Jisc have announced a pilot project to develop best practices for a potential UK-wide adoption of ORCID in higher education.  

Link your ORCID record to your funding!

Laure Haak's picture

It goes without saying that funding is essential for research. Perhaps less well-recognized is that funding awards are an important component of a researcher’s record of contributions.

ORCID now provides researchers the tools to link their ORCID iD to their funding awards. Together with efforts by funding organizations to integrate ORCID identifiers into grants application and post-award reporting workflows, these tools will support the claiming of existing and new funded awards.

Read on for more on how to link your iD with your funding, and for an overview of how funders are integrating ORCID identifiers.
