Several weeks ago the Works Metadata Working Group provided us some recommendations for improving how ORCID Records store and interact with Works. We are excited to share with you our first round of improvements. Included in this update are updates to the definition of a "duplicate work", adding abbreviations for external identifiers, new works fields, and a new UI for entering works.

ORCID is pleased to announce the nine project partners who will be participating in the ORCID Adoption and Integration (A&I) Program, which provides external funding for North American universities and science and social science professional associations to integrate ORCID identifiers, supports the elicitation and documentation of use cases and open source code, and establishes a collaborative venue for disseminating best practices. This program is made possible through support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

At ORCID, we have been largely focused on researchers who perform research and use the Registry to obtain an iD and link to their works. In fact, there is another group of researchers who will benefit: those who are interested in mining the linkages in ORCID data to derive and test models of knowledge flow and innovation--the "science of science policy" community. ORCID and similar community-driven infrastructure organizations can learn from the Science of Science Policy community about the needs of its researchers to ensure that the developing infrastructure is appropriately responsive.

Last week ORCID attended the Research Data Alliance and DataCite meetings, both held at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. There was a lot of buzz about ORCID at these events. To truly support e-research, it’s essential to use persistent identifiers to connect data creators with their data, and that’s what the ORCID iD does!

Acabo de regresar de un viaje por España perfectamente coordinado por Consol García, de la Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña·BarcelonaTech. Nos reunimos con investigadores y bibliotecarios, con responsables de consorcios de bibliotecas universitarias y centros de investigación y con empresas desarrolladoras de CRIS, mientras atravesábamos el país desde Barcelona hasta Sevilla, pasando por Madrid y Logroño. Desde el lanzamiento de ORCID hace un año, los investigadores españoles se encuentran entre los que más utilizan el registro. España siempre ha ocupado una destacada posición entre los 5 primeros países.

I’ve just returned from a trip through Spain, wonderfully coordinated by Consol Garcia of Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya - Barcelona Tech. We met with researchers, library consortia, universities, research institutes, state and federal government research organizations, and with CRIS and repository vendors as we criss-crossed the country from Barcelona, to Madrid, Logrono, and Sevilla. There is strong participation in ORCID by Spanish researchers and growing membership among Spansih organization.

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.
