Introduction ORCID adoption by funding organizations - Andrea Biddle September 25th 2014

  1. 1. Might a unique identifier be useful to the funding community? 0003-0273-7439 Andrea K. Biddle, PhD Executive Director HRA ORCID-HRA Webinar 25 September 2014
  2. 2. Potential Benefits for Funders • Funders need to: – Easily track the research careers and productivity of grantees during the grant and beyond – Show return on investment • Having a single, unique identifier may be beneficial if: – Data can be reciprocally shared between publishers, library clearinghouses (NLM, PubMed Central) – Funders “require” participation and grantees “comply”
  3. 3. Potential Benefits to Researchers • Ability to easily differentiate their own articles and grants from those of similarly-named researchers (from Varmus, HE to Smith/Jones/Lee/Li/Nguyen) • Ideally, a way to maintain an up-to-date CV without relying the myriad of different systems – For tenure and promotion decisions – To demonstrate “impact” in terms of citation indices and article-level metrics • However, obtaining a number and linking all of the publications/grants needs to be easy for us (“carrot”) and we probably won’t do it until you make us (“stick”)
