Name ambiguity and attribution are persistent, critical problems embedded in the scholarly research ecosystem. The Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID) Initiative represents a community effort to establish an open, independent registry that is adopted and embraced as the industry’s de facto standard.
ORCID Outreach Meetings (formerly Participant Meetings) take place about twice a year. They are a unique opportunity to learn about the progress of the ORCID initiative in person and to discuss relevant issues with the community.
The September 2011 meeting was sponsored by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).
We provided WebEx and dial-in capabilities for those who could not attend in-person.
