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.

A little known fact about the ORCID Registry is how often we update funtionality, sometimes as frequently as weekly! You will be delighted with what has changed. We encourage you to log into your ORCID record, update your account, and connect your activities, with new features that support linkage with multiple email addresses, enhanced privacy management, and more search and link wizards.

Datasets are an important output and resource for researchers of all disciplines. For the community to effectively access and re-use datasets, an understanding of data storage and attribution is fundamental. From that understanding flows the development and use of standard data exchange protocols. How are ORCID identifers being embedded into data respository workflows? In addition to a number of recent integrations by figshare, ANDS, and ODIN, Dryad is starting work to pilot use of ORCID identifiers in DSpace, discussed at the recent OAI8 DSpace User Meeting hosted by @mire.

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.

After receiving a cease and desist order from the orc, we have been trying very hard to clarify how to pronounce ORCID. However, even with our best efforts, there is a contingent of the community that persists in saying “orc – eye-dee”.
