"Distinguishing UK research and researchers": ORCID in the UK

  1. 1. i “Distinguishing UK Research and Researchers” - ORCID in the UK 19th May 2o15 Orcid-Casrai Conference
  2. 2. Overview 1. Overview of ORCID activity in the UK 2. Outcomes of Jisc-ARMA ORCID pilot work 3. Institutional Case Studies 1. Ellen Cole – Northumbria 2. Lesley Gould - Kent 4. Panel: Q and A 2
  3. 3. Open Research Data – A Jisc perspective 3 Mission To enable people in higher education, further education and skills in the UK to perform at the forefront of international practice by exploiting fully the possibilities of modern digital empowerment, content and connectivity Vision To make the UK the most digitally advanced education and research nation in the world
  4. 4. What Jisc delivers… Open Research Data – A Jisc perspective 4 Digital content Network & IT services Advice Research & development We provide institutions, their students and researchers secure, cost-effective access to the UK’s richest collection of digital resources. We provide the HE sector with Janet, the Jisc network, advanced infrastructure services and collaboration platforms. We listen to our members to ensure we offer them quality support, guidance and tools - estimated to save the sector £122 million in cost efficiencies each year. Identifying emerging technologies and developing them around our members’ needs.Testing and learning on their behalf to ensure they are ready to take advantage of new technologies as they arrive.
  5. 5. Jisc – standards and interoperability 5 › Leading and supporting implementation of key standards › How? › Getting intelligence about what the problems/issues are › Building consensus › Commissioning work to understand how to implement standards and implications › Trialling approaches in the sector/research environment › Publishing outputs in useable form (e.g. application profiles, entries in CASRAI Data dictionary, plug-ins, guidelines, specifications for how services interact with standards) › Implementation which involves ongoing work to make interoperability happen
  6. 6. Jisc – Standards Workflow 6 Research/ requirements Identify Use case/issue Consultation Consensus building Develop approach Document Implement

  10. 10. ORCID adoption in the UK 09/03/2015 Jisc Digital Festival, 9-10 March 2015, ICC Birmingham 10 » Next step was to coordinate ORCID consortium membership for UK Jisc has now: » Consulted the sector to ask HEIs to express their interest in participating in consortium (ORCID premium membership), also consulting with funders and reconvened ORCID implementation group (ARMA, HEFCE, RCUK, UCISA, HESA, SCONUL, RLUK,WellcomeTrust, BL) » Considering what other support we can provide post the Jisc ARMA ORCID pilot – e.g. technical support » Results of the pilot now accessible from the Jisc ORCID blog at http://orcidpilot.jiscinvolve.org » Including the “Institutional ORCID Implementation and Cost-BenefitAnalysis Report”
  11. 11. ORCID pilot – key findings 09/03/2015 Jisc Digital Festival, 9-10 March 2015, ICC Birmingham 11 » Target audience for report is Universities wanting to implement ORCID » Also findings of interest to Funders, Standards bodies, Publishers andVendors in space (UK and international) » The report covers › Key perspectives from the above organisations › Findings from pilot (organisational, communication, legal, technical approaches etc.) › Cost benefit analysis of adoption › ORCID check list for Universities
  12. 12. ORCID pilot – stakeholder perspectives 12 » Funders moving (at a measured pace) toward mandating ORCID as part of the grant submission process » Publishers and vendors who engaged in the pilot were very supportive and were responsive to requests for technical integration
  13. 13. ORCID pilot – University participant findings 09/03/2015 13 » Participating teams were from across the organisation (Library, Research Office, IT Services andAcademic Departments) this worked well » Other Key factors were - early buy in from senior management, and consultation with legal and Human Resources » Technical issues were not at a significant hurdle (generally integration with internal systems and processes was achieved) » Senior managers were convinced of the benefits (even if longer term) » Convincing researchers to engage was harder » Benefits of ORCID adoption will increase over time – including time and efficiency savings » The process does not stop now the pilots have ended
  14. 14. Time spent on ORCID implementation 31/05/2015 Title of presentation (Go to ‘View’ menu > ‘Header and Footer…’ to edit the footers on this slide) 14 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 A B C D E F G H Average Timeinhours Institution Library IS (Technical) Research Office Other
  15. 15. ORCID pilot – Cost-benefit analysis 15 » Costs › ImplementingORCID = average of 290 hours of staff time, at total cost of £12,500. (one off cost including 1 year of consortium membership – cheaper if national consortium) › Institutions could resource implementation from existing staff - incremental costs of implementation - ORCID membership, and small budget for promotion and travel › Ongoing costs of using ORCID were felt to be negligible by most institutions. (apart from subscription) › Estimated costs for adoption of ORCID by 120 UK higher education institutions over the next 5 year is total of £2.1m (assuming the proposed UK consortium membership proceeds)
  16. 16. Costs incurred in ORCID implementation 31/05/2015 Title of presentation (Go to ‘View’ menu > ‘Header and Footer…’ to edit the footers on this slide) 16 - 5,000 10,000 15,000 20,000 25,000 A B C D E F G H Average Implementationcosts(£) Institution Staff Time Travel and events Promotional materials ORCID membership IT costs
  17. 17. ORCID pilot – Cost-benefit analysis 17 » Benefits › The benefits of ORCID - difficult to quantify so soon, however a saving of 15 minutes per researcher and 0.1 administrative staff members time per institution would be required to recover initial investment over 5 years › ORCID will enable a wide of range of improvements to the scholarly communications ecosystem - these have not been given a financial value but many stakeholders consulted saw these as more important than admin. savings and efficiencies » In summary- the report found that adoption of ORCID can be achieved at a relatively small cost to institutions, and to the sector as a whole, and that the potential benefits substantially exceed the costs incurred.
  18. 18. In Summary 18 » Have a look at the Report and other material on the blog http://orcidpilot.jiscinvolve.org » Orcid in the UK is a “no brainer” » (It is ORCID not Orcid) » Process and time frame has been pretty good - considering…. » 50 Universities now indicated interest in joining the consortium » Lead by example : 0000-0002-9015-7380
