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,

A number of publishers and funders have been integrating ORCID identifiers into their review workflows. They are now asking us how to post review activity information to ORCID records. We are pleased to announce a community collaboration, managed by CASRAI, to answer that question.

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.

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.

ORCID is a community-driven organization. We benefit greatly from our steering and working groups, which guide and support the evolution and ongoing development of the ORCID system. In addition, ORCID participates in and supports the broader community effort to promote data quality and interoperability in the collection, management, exchange and aggregation of research information. Toward this mission, ORCID is partnering with the following organizations: CASRAI, DataCite, euroCRIS, Force11, Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, ISNI, and Research Data Alliance.

A question we get often is, what happens when/if a second ORCID iD is created for the same person? As a matter of policy, ORCID does not absolutely prevent multiple iDs/records from being intentionally created and maintained by an individual, though we have put into place a number of policies and practices to prevent duplicates from being created unintentionally, or to merge records when they do.

In 2013, ORCID moved from a demonstrator to a stable system used by close to half a million researchers. During the year, a number of integrations were launched that supported the visibility and adoption of ORCID identifiers by the community, including association with external identifiers including ResearcherID and Scopus; embedding in many manuscript submission systems, discussions about national adoption, the collection of ORCID iDs by research funders, the creation of ORCID records by universities, embedding in data and publication repositories, and collection and display of ORCID identifiers by external systems. ORCID closed the year with over 460,000 registrants and 111 organizational members. We have users in every country and territory, and members on every continent. Read on for highlights from the year.

As part of ORCID’s one-year anniversary, we have reviewed our member agreements to incorporate feedback received from the community. We are pleased to report a number of changes we hope will encourage responsible use of ORCID identifiers and streamline the membership and integration process, including an Authentication-only API that does not require membership. Read the post and see our updated Membership and Subscriptions webpage for more details.
