In 2017, we made progress on several fronts. We welcomed almost 200 new members, including new consortia in Canada, South Africa, Norway, and the US. We have over 4 million registered users. We nurtured working groups on ORCID in Books, User Facilities, and Organization Identifiers. And as always, we released new features and were integrated into many more workflows, making life just that much better for researchers.

Continuing our series on ORCID consortia, this post takes a look at a consortium in its formation stage: the ORCID Japanese research institute consortium. We spoke with Dr. Masao Mori , a representative of one of the potential consortium members, about their plans: who is in discussion to join, what benefits they see of consortium membership, and the challenges they need to address.

Today we’re launching the Arabic localization of the ORCID Registry user interface. It’s a fully community-sourced localization, and our first right-to-left language. Our thanks to the dedicated team of translators who made this possible.

Research funding organizations are a core component of our mission and vision, and have been involved with ORCID since before we launched the Registry. Here we report on our work with funders, including the ORBIT project.

User facilities are specialized government-sponsored research infrastructure, such as labs, collections, field stations, or large equipment, that are available for researchers’ use to advance scientific or technical knowledge. Researchers compete for access but do not consistently acknowledge use of facilities when they publish datasets or research findings, making it difficult to assess the scientific impact of these public investments. Recently several facilities have begun to explore innovative approaches to these challenges, including adoption of ORCID.
