What's So Special About Signing In?

You may be wondering why researchers are asked for their ORCID sign-in details  to add a new connection to their record. There are two reasons: principle (we believe researchers should always be in control of their data) and practical (we want to provide transparency and trust for all the connections ORCID helps to make). This blog post sets out how this works, why it's important, and how it helps you.

Three Major Publishers Sign the ORCID Open Letter

In January 2016, eight publishers signed an open letter committing their organizations to requiring ORCID iDs for journal authors. Importantly, they also committed to adopting our best practices when implementing this requirement, to ensure that it would benefit their authors, their organizations, and the wider scholarly community. This includes collecting validated ORCID iDs to ensure the correct iD is associated with the author, displaying iDs in articles to signal support for ORCID, and including ORCID iDs with the metadata sent to Crossref to support auto-update of authors’ ORCID records when their article publishes. On November 28, their efforts received a significant boost when the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and Wiley signed the letter.
