The Problem: ConnectingResearch with ResearchersWithout a way to uniquely identify those participating inresearch across disciplines, organizations, and countries,the research community lacks the ability toaccurately and easily identify and link researchersand scholars with their professional activities. 2
Broadly SpeakingSuccess would mean that(1) Researchers can be uniquely identified using ORCID IDs(2) Researchers can be reliably linked with their research(3) Researchers and organizations are happy with the ORCID service
In the short term:v Are researchers logging on to ORCID?v Are they able to register?v Are institutions registering their researchers?v Are researchers using ORCID IDs in other contexts?v Are other organizations integrating ORCID IDs? 4
In the medium/long term:v Are researchers creating ORCID Records?v Are ORCID Records getting updates via API?v Are ORCID IDs widely used in the research community, both by researchers and organizations?v Is the research community able to link research with researchers using the ORCID Registry data? 5
What will we measure (now)?How many people are registering? From which domains?Countries?How are people using the Website (Google Analysitcs—pagehits, user flows)?How many members? How many tokens issued? From whatstakeholder groups?How many organizations are registering their researchers?From what countries?How many organizations are integrating ORCID IDs? Typesof integrations? How many use cases? Code samples?
Your thoughts?What would you call success?What should we measure? 7
