  2. 2. Engaging Researchers “Researchers want to be read, acknowledged, and quoted.” 19 July 2016 2 “Researchers want to spend their time on research, not reporting”
  3. 3. Names are Messy 19 July 2016 3
  4. 4. 4 Can names be cleaned up? Of course they can! We need to use digital names: persistent identifiers that uniquely specify the person, organization, or object to which a name refers
  5. 5. 5 ORCID provides persistent digital identifiers that distinguish researchers from each other
  6. 6. 6 ORCID is Open •  Non-proprietary and platform-neutral •  International service that integrates with other researcher identifiers •  Registry use is free for individuals •  Independent non-profit membership organization •  Open data, software,APIs, and documentation
  7. 7. Researcher Responsibility 19 July 2016 7 To benefit, researchers need only do 2 things: ①  Register for an iD ②  Use it!
  8. 8. 19 July 2016 8 Over 2 million researchers have registered for an ORCID identifier. ORCID iDs are associated with: •  >6 million unique DOIs (papers & data) •  >50 thousand unique organization IDs

  11. 11. 11 Organizations are use ORCID APIs to authenticate, collect, display, and connect persistent identifiers for people, places, and things in research workflows ORCID enables assertions
  12. 12. Any Discipline,Any Country ORCID can connect to over 30 work types, in any language The Registry is available in 11 languages We have staff in 9 countries who speak 7 languages We have members in over 20 countries, across disciplines We have users in every country 19 July 2016 12
  13. 13. Example: Digital Humanities After Professor Andrew Brown studied classical and jazz piano at The University of Melbourne he worked as a keyboard player in touring bands through the 1980s. During this time an interest in electronic keyboards grew into a passion for music technology more broadly. This passion has fuelled an academic career in teaching and research at The University of Melbourne, Queensland University of Technology, the Australasian CRC for Interaction Design and now Griffith University. His current performance practice is laptop live coding and he is involved in a range of digital arts practices. 19 July 2016 13

  15. 15. “We want to use ORCIDs to simplify the life of Oxford’s researchers for working with institutional systems and publishers’ systems by re-using already available information for publication data management and reporting. The motto is: Input once – re-use often.”   Wolfram Horstmann, (fmr) Assoc. Director, Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford 19 July 2016 15 Universities
  16. 16. Funders National funding agencies are using ORCID in their grants management systems including the National Research Foundation (ZA) National Institutes of Health (US), Research Councils UK and the Australian Research Council. 19 July 2016 16

  23. 23. 19 July 2016 23 The ability to uniquely identify contributors is a deceptively simple concept which, if realised, could enable forms of real-time understanding of scientific research that up to now have been extremely costly (if not impossible). --Jonathan Kram,Wellcome Trust
