Works Metadata: Recommendations from our Working Group

laura paglione's picture

ORCID formed a technical working group in February 2013 to examine the metadata used for Works in the ORCID Registry. We charged the group to review the current Works data and service models, and present recommendations for improvements (See the complete Charge of the Works Metadata Working Group.) While usability and display of Works were not directly a part of the group’s charge, these topics surfaced occasionally, and suggestions also were noted. The WG provided specific suggestions for improvements in the areas of actionable external identifiers, citations, work types, internationalization and contribution types and roles. The full set of recommendations can be found on the working group’s page on the ORCID website.

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.

Suggested Practices for Collection and Display of ORCID iDs in Publishing Workflows

Laure Haak's picture

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.
