From the ORCID Outreach Meeting, May 21-22, 2014, Chicago Illinois. https://orcid.org/content/orcid-outreach-meeting-and-codefest-may-2014

ORCID integration into researcher information systems

The ORCID identifier has been integrated into numerous researcher information system platforms available to the research community, providing the opportunity for improved data through disambiguation and reducing the time-consuming process of maintaining up-to-date records for both individuals and organizations. This session will feature a discussion of integration points, policy issues, data flow between systems, researcher participation, discovered opportunities, improved metrics and reporting, and demonstrations by universities and vendors.
