ORCID has been working with CrossRef and DataCite to enhance the interoperability of scholarly information - capturing embedded unique identifiers for researchers and their research outputs (journal articles and datasets) and supporting the improved flow of information between systems. The benefits, and potential, of these developments are really exciting. Researchers benefit from automatic updates to their personal record, systems linked to the ORCID registry can re-use the information, saving more time and effort, and other IDs and information sources can link to the new metadata. Building connections like this, to improve the flow of information through the scholarly ecosystem, is a great example of why we refer to ORCID as plumbing. IDs help make e-infrastructure for research work better.

  1. 1. Capture, embed, interoperate: ORCID iDs can be linked to many other IDs and information sources Identifiers in the service of research Publishers include ORCID iD in article metadata when they mint a DOI with CrossRef Data centres include ORCID iD in dataset metadata when they mint a DataCite DOI The metadata round trip She includes her ORCID iD when she submits her manuscript to a journal or her dataset to a data centre CrossRef and DataCite transmit the new DOI plus the associated metadata to the ORCID registry The researcher’s ORCID record is automatically updated with the new metadata and Identifiers The researcher registers for a free ORCID iD at or via an ORCID integration at her institution or funder Updates are pushed from the ORCID registry to other systems (CRIS, repositories, grant management systems) on the researcher’s behalf Researchers benefit from effortless updates to their personal record and easier re-use of their information. Institutions get more timely information. Other iDs or metadata could follow this process – the potential is enormous
