Three Major Publishers Sign the ORCID Open Letter

Alice Meadows's picture

In January 2016, eight publishers signed an open letter committing their organizations to requiring ORCID iDs for journal authors. Importantly, they also committed to adopting our best practices when implementing this requirement, to ensure that it would benefit their authors, their organizations, and the wider scholarly community. This includes collecting validated ORCID iDs to ensure the correct iD is associated with the author, displaying iDs in articles to signal support for ORCID, and including ORCID iDs with the metadata sent to Crossref to support auto-update of authors’ ORCID records when their article publishes. On November 28, their efforts received a significant boost when the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and Wiley signed the letter.

Organization identifier project: A way forward

Laure Haak's picture

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.
