Help us celebrate by entering our "Best Tweet and Best Quote" competition.   What is your view of ORCID, your vision, your experience?  Why should your colleagues, your organization,  your association, your funder, your favorite application, use ORCID?  What is the best implementation of ORCID you have seen?

The winners will receive a coffee cup customized with their very own ORCID iD!  To enter the competition, send your tweet or quote with your name, affiliation, and ORCID iD, to [email protected], no later than Friday, October 10, 2014.  All submissions CC-BY.

Laure Haak's picture

CBUA: Consorcio de Bibliotecas Universitarias de Andalucía (Consortium of Andalusian University Libraries) is ORCID’s newest consortium member.  The CBUA ORCID initiative is led by the University of Sevilla, and aims to provide facilities to register researchers at the nine participating universities and to integrate ORCID identifiers into institutional repositories and institutional and regional research information systems (CRIS).  The CBUA have launched a Webpage that provides information on the initiative in Spanish.

Registration now open for Tokyo Outreach Meeting

The program will highlight how research organizations and universities, publishers, and professional societies in Asia are adopting ORCID, sharing lessons learned from implementations as well as plans for the future. The event is free and everyone who performs or supports research is invited to attend:  researchers, funders, professional association leaders, publishers, research policy-makers, repository managers, facilities managers, librarians, institutional leaders, research directors, and vendors. 

Denmark adopts ORCID! A Consortium approach to ORCID implementation.

Laure Haak's picture

Denmark’s universities and research institutions all have their own CRIS (current research information system) with extensive information on their researchers and research output. Information on publications are harvested on a national basis to create a national research dissemination and promotion site. This also supports the calculation of the national bibliographic indicator, one of the comparative measures used by the government to determine the funding of universities.

ORCID at the American Chemical Society Meeting

ORCID attended the 248th national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in San Francisco in August.  ACS is both an ORCID sponsor and member organization, and it now requests ORCID identifiers during journal manuscript submission. We met with a number of the nearly 15,000 scientists and students who participated in this event at our exhibitor booth.

A recipe for trust

JoshBrown's picture

As ORCID interoperates with more partners and data systems, it becomes more clear that trust works both ways: it must be mutual. Without trust in the provenance, persistence, and uniqueness of digital identifiers, the services and tools that the world of research increasingly relies on cannot operate.

Please save the date for our next ORCID Outreach Meeting, which will be held on 4 November 2014 at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan. We are looking forward to learning more about ORCID adoption in Asia and Pacific Rim countries from integrators, institutional leaders, national stakeholders, and researchers.

ORCID アウトリーチ・ミーティングが、国立情報学研究所の協力のもと、2014 年 11 月 4 日に東京で開催されます。ORCID がアジア太平洋地域の国々で、インテグレーター、研究機関、国の機関や研究者にどのように広がっているかを学ぶ良い機会になることを願っています。
