A consortium of Catalan universities have announced they will be using ORCID as their standard researcher identifier. Included are the Universitat de Barcelona, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Universitat de Girona, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Universitat de Lleida, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Universitat Ramon Llull, Universitat de Vic and the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya.

At ORCID, we have been largely focused on researchers who perform research and use the Registry to obtain an iD and link to their works. In fact, there is another group of researchers who will benefit: those who are interested in mining the linkages in ORCID data to derive and test models of knowledge flow and innovation--the "science of science policy" community. ORCID and similar community-driven infrastructure organizations can learn from the Science of Science Policy community about the needs of its researchers to ensure that the developing infrastructure is appropriately responsive.

Acabo de regresar de un viaje por España perfectamente coordinado por Consol García, de la Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña·BarcelonaTech. Nos reunimos con investigadores y bibliotecarios, con responsables de consorcios de bibliotecas universitarias y centros de investigación y con empresas desarrolladoras de CRIS, mientras atravesábamos el país desde Barcelona hasta Sevilla, pasando por Madrid y Logroño. Desde el lanzamiento de ORCID hace un año, los investigadores españoles se encuentran entre los que más utilizan el registro. España siempre ha ocupado una destacada posición entre los 5 primeros países.

I’ve just returned from a trip through Spain, wonderfully coordinated by Consol Garcia of Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech. We met with researchers, library consortia, universities, research institutes, state and federal government research organizations, and with CRIS and repository vendors as we criss-crossed the country from Barcelona, to Madrid, Logrono, and Sevilla. There is strong participation in ORCID by Spanish researchers and growing membership among Spansih organization.

We are nearing the one-year anniversary of the launch of the ORCID Registry. In the past year, we have seen the Registry grow in many ways, reaching and exceeding 250,000 registrants, 80 members, integrations across the spectrum of members, and sponsors who have helped to make this all possible.

For ORCID identifiers to become part of the metadata on published works, publishers must embed them throughout the publishing workflow: from submission of a manuscript through to publishing and to transmission of XML to CrossRef. We will be discussing integration of ORCID identifiers in two venues: during a Webinar on September 19, and at our Outreach meeting on October 30. As a prelude to these events, in this blog I present current-end-to-end integrations and proposals for standard online and print display practices. ORCID would very much like your feedback prior to and during these upcoming meetings as we develop recommended best practices for integration of ORCID identifiers by the publishing community.

ORCID users: You can now link to your articles in Europe PubMedCentral (PMC) directly from the ORCID user interface. Using the new search and import tool makes it easy for you to add high-quality information to your ORCID record, and will allow your works to be viewed in Europe PMC.

ORCID will be launching its affiliation module this fall using ISNI unique organizational identifiers, to support the accurate and persistent identification of researcher institutional affiliations. ISNI and Ringgold are currently collaborating to crosswalk Ringgold organizational identifiers with ISNI identifiers. ORCID plans to work through Ringgold to obtain organizational identifiers for public use in the ORCID registry, including the Ringgold Institutional Identifier, the ISNI number, Institution Name, location data, URL and alternative name. This important development will enable data mapping between different organizations and also the data systems within those organizations.

ORCID announces a new project aimed at encouraging the adoption and integration of persistent researcher identifiers by research universities and scientific and social science professional associations. Funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, this project will provide external funding and personalized outreach and technical support to participating organizations. The goal of this program is to catalyze broader community adoption by standardizing and streamlining the ORCID identifier integration process, collecting and documenting use cases, developing open source code samples, and providing case studies of working integrations. The program will disseminate use cases and integration best practices through an Outreach meeting and CodeFest, to be held in Chicago in May 2014. Up to 10 grants of $15,000-$20,000 each are available. More information on the program and the RFP are available at https://orcid.org/content/rfp-2013-06-orcid-id-adoption-and-integration-program. Proposals are due by August 31, 2013.
