All ORCID websites, including the Registry (Public and Member APIs and the user interface), orcid.org and members.orcid.org are now back online. Thank you for your patience while we upgraded our hardware.

The ORCID API documents have been updated to include details of the search API. The ORCID search API is based on SOLR, and will support all query syntaxes available in SOLR 3.6, including the following.

  • Lucene with SOLR extensions
  • DisMax
  • Extended DisMax

Details of the API can be found in the Query API documentation here: http://goo.gl/OWMju. The implementation of the Search API will be released in the upcoming 1.0 release of the ORCID binary.
