Universities and research organizations are integrating ORCID identifiers into repositories, researcher information systems, and campus directories. They are also making it easier for their faculty, researchers, and students to create ORCID iDs.
ORCID is committed to openness and community, and we offer multiple ways to connect, learn, and share:
- Attend an outreach meeting
- Subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates about ORCID
- Read, vote on & contribute iDeas to the ORCID iDeas Forum.
- Request organizational membership. See our list of member organizations.
- Read our Trademark display policy
- Learn more about the status of current integrations
About ORCID integrations at universities and research institutes
Universities and other research organizations are embedding ORCID identifiers into repositories, electronic theses and dissertations, research information systems, human resources, and more, and many are supporting the adoption of ORCID identifiers by making it easier for their students, faculty, and researchers to create ORCID iDs.
Here are some useful resources:
- ORCID Pilot Project for UK Integrations: As part of Jisc’s commitment to advancing UK research through digital technology on a global scale, Jisc and ARMA invited UK higher education institutions (HEIs) to participate in an ORCID pilot. They supported eight HEIs to participate in the pilot. The HEI-based projects ran from May 2014-January 2015. The final report on the pilot is available online (PDF), and other outputs from the pilot are linked from the project blog.
- Documented use cases from ORCID Adoption and Integration Program partners within the university community are integrating ORCID identifiers into numerous systems
- Texas A&M, Chalmers Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, National Taiwan University, Hong Kong University, La Universidad de Zaragoza and others are creating ORCID iDs for researchers and incorporating into other university systems
