Kiermer outreach oct2013

  1. 1. Integration of ORCID identifiers by publishers Véronique Kiermer, PhD Executive Editor Head of Researchers Services Nature Publishing Group ORCID Outreach Meeting October 2013
  2. 2. Credits • Howard Ratner, CHORUS • Tara Packer, Head of Authors & Referees Services, NPG • Mark Henry, Vrushali Potdar, Ingrid McNamara, Rebecca Barr, Alex Kotin
  3. 3. NPG facilitates ORCID registration at two touch points Journal website Readers, Subscribers, Commenters Manuscript tracking system Authors, Referees
  4. 4. Benefits to publishers • • • • disambiguation of user accounts cross-talk between multiple internal systems richer connections on the website service to authors
  5. 5. Upon registration
  6. 6. ORCID: Authentication - set up NPG as trusted entity
  7. 7. ORCID information prepopulates NPG registration form In NPG systems: - a given ORCID can only be linked to one account - only one ORCID per account - user authenticate once then ORCID is shared with their other accounts in other NPG systems
  8. 8. Upon manuscript submission Authenticate to ORCID to create an identifier or link an existing identifier Set up NPG as trusted entity ORCID information pre-populates author information in submission form ORCID becomes associated with eJP account
  9. 9. Searching NPG database by ORCID
  10. 10. ORCID collection Production Article file Publication Third party
  11. 11. Export from eJP to production tracking system
  12. 12. Adding ORCID in XML
  13. 13. Upon publication
  14. 14. Link from article to ORCID record • In future: update of ORCID record upon publication • NPG already sends ORCID-doi association to CrossRef and indexers • In future, CrossRef will be able to push information to ORCID
  15. 15. ORCID collection Production Article file Publication Third party
  16. 16. Publishers implementation challenges • O Auth protocol implementation • ensuring that ORCIDs remain unique • dealing with multiple vendors during production • manual integration in XML • proofing challenges • correction policy
  17. 17. Stats • Traffic referral to ORCID from NPG systems: 3,000 visitors/month (~2,500 unique visitors) • ORCID creation: ~1,000 /month • September: 1,735 authorizations; 25 access denied Since launch at NPG (1 year): • 4500 user accounts in manuscript tracking system with ORCIDs • 4166 user accounts in with ORCIDs
  18. 18. An ORCID mandate for all authors? • we currently do not mandate ORCIDs • we may consider mandating ORCID for corresponding authors/submitters but NOT for co-authors • we need strong incentives for authors to make them link an ORCID to their paper • requires the whole ecosystem to work in coordinated fashion
  19. 19. Two options to encourage adoption Contact co-authors Submitter enters ORCIDs instead of Authors details • Publisher collects min information about coauthors from submitter: name, email • Publisher contacts all coauthors during manuscript consideration – asking them to register for an ORCID • Benefits to authors? • Publisher queries ORCID and returns prepopulated field for submitter to validate • Need email and affiliation from ORCID
  20. 20. Incentives for authors • “Make my life easier when I submit a paper” – remove the need to key in my up-to-date personal information – remove the need for me to enter my co-authors information • “Help me manage my online presence and reporting needs” – my ORCID profile is automatically updated upon publication of a new article – my other profiles read from ORCID – my publisher knows my obligations to my funder (ms deposition)
  21. 21. Potential future services • facilitate manuscript submission • automate deposition of manuscripts in relevant repositories • better recommendations to readers • commenting notification • micro-attribution, better credit for all contributions
  22. 22. Thank you!
