ORCID iDs in the Academic Publishing Workflow

ORCID Implementation Workshop for Publishers

ORCID has a two-fold mission. We provide an open Registry of unique researcher identifiers, with associated activities, affiliations, and works, primarily managed by researchers themselves. We also work collaboratively with the research community to enable linkages between these identifiers and other identifier schemes and systems, and allow assertions about these records to be made by organizations other than the individual researcher.

Launched in October 2012, the ORCID Registry has about 250,000 ORCID iD holders and 80 member organizations who have developed or are working on integrations with the Registry. Many of these integrations are related directly to the academic publishing workflow.

This webinar was held on Thursday, September 19 at 11:00 EDT to discuss several current publishing workflow integrations, and their plans for the near future.
