A number of publishers and funders have been integrating ORCID identifiers into their review workflows. They are now asking us how to post review activity information to ORCID records. We are pleased to announce a community collaboration, managed by CASRAI, to answer that question.

In the past few weeks, we've seen some exciting new integrations that link ORCID identifiers with graduate student thesis and dissertation information. These developments, coming from the British Library and Texas A&M University, help connect scholars with their important, early career publications. A master's thesis or doctoral dissertation is often a researcher's first publication, but it often lacks the visibility of more formally published materials. Integration of ORCID identifiers in the electronic thesis and dissertation (ETD) process helps to raise the visibility of these important contributions and also can provide a verifiable link with the student's graduate institution.

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in the bi-annual meeting of SPARC in Kansas City. SPARC, the Scholar Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, is an international alliance of academic research libraries working to promote open systems of scholarly communications. The meeting was attended by about 200 U.S. and Canadian librarians who are dedicated to the collection, archiving, and dissemination of research through open access publishing and repositories. While I was connecting with librarians, Executive Director Laure Haak was staffing an ORCID booth at the American Physical Society meeting, helping faculty, researchers, and students register for an ORCID identifier. These events are among many in our outreach to connect with universities, publishers, and researchers and explain the value and benefit of registering, embedding, and using ORCID identifiers.

Last spring, a broad group of UK higher education sector bodies, funders and professional associations signed a joint statement expressing their support for the ORCID initiative. Now, HESA has integrated ORCID identifiers into its Student Record, and Jisc have announced a pilot project to develop best practices for a potential UK-wide adoption of ORCID in higher education.

It goes without saying that funding is essential for research. Perhaps less well-recognized is that funding awards are an important component of a researcher’s record of contributions.
ORCID now provides researchers the tools to link their ORCID iD to their funding awards. Together with efforts by funding organizations to integrate ORCID identifiers into grants application and post-award reporting workflows, these tools will support the claiming of existing and new funded awards.
Read on for more on how to link your iD with your funding, and for an overview of how funders are integrating ORCID identifiers.

As a community-driven organization, we encourage input and involvement from the scholarly communications community. Through your participation, we can better prioritize, plan, and implement features and tools to support your needs. There are many opportunities to get involved with ORCID: mailing lists, ambassador activities, technical discussions and code contributions, steering and working groups, bi-annual outreach meetings, and by becoming a member. We look forward to working with you!
