It is a natural fit for ORCID to be involved in conversations about organization identifiers. We are a major stakeholder in this space. Working jointly with Crossref and DataCite, we have developed a set of working papers and now call for a Working Group to move an effort forward to stand up a community-based organization identifier registry. These papers will be open for feedback until mid-November after which a Working Group will be established to take on responsibility for the project.

Helping researchers to get recognition for their many contributions - including their peer review actvities - is something we care deeply about at ORCID. It's also the theme for Peer Review Week 2016, which runs from September 19-25. We are delighted to share these examples of how the organizations involved in planning PRW are currently recognizing review, as well as some of their plans for the future.
