ORCID Peer Review Early Adopter Program

In early 2014 ORCID worked with F1000 and CASRAI to create a working group to look at Peer Review Activity and the fields use to describe it. ORCID has developed an Early Adopter program for organizations that would like to develop workflows and system connections to the ORCID implementation prior to our official launch. To join the Early Adopter program, organizations make the following commitments:

  • Software developers who have implemented other aspects of the ORCID API for their organization
  • Organizational bandwidth to incorporate ORCID's peer review functionality into processes/systems during sumer 2015
  • Organizational buy-in to launch the work done during summer 2015
  • Interest in being a part of ORCID's peer review activity communications campaign

So far several organizations have expressed an interest in exploring the Early Adopter program, including:

  • F1000
  • Aries Systems
  • Politics & Religion Journal
  • AGU with eJournalPress
  • Peerage of Science
  • Publons

Even if you are not interested in the early adopter program, this page provides the details of ORCID's implementation of the Peer Review Working Group recommendations. After its launch, Peer Review functionality will be open to all ORCID API users later this year. See our blog posts about this topic:

Introduction webinar: ORCID and peer review

The following recorded webinar discusses the background of the working group on peer review, and how the group's work has evolved into a standard set of fields for describing peer review activity. We reviewed how these fields are expressed and interpreted within the ORCID website and API, and reviewed the next steps for implementing an early adopter integration for this new functionality.
