ORCID iDs: Optimizing Research Discoverability

  1. 1. Michael Ladisch UCD Library (01) 716 7530 ORCID: ORCID iDs: Optimizing Research Discoverability
  2. 2. ORCID (“orkid”) = Open Researcher and Contributor ID NOT:“ORCID is like a DOI for researchers.”
  3. 3. The problem The research community has lacked the ability to link researchers with their professional activities. As a researcher, you want to  eliminate name ambiguity, distinguishing you from other researchers and ensuring proper attribution.  ensure your work is discoverable and connected to you throughout your career;  minimize the time you spend entering repetitive data online; and
  4. 4. How can ORCID help? ORCID provides you a unique and persistent personal identifier that connects you and your research activities throughout your career. Registry use is internationalMore than 600,000 iDs issued to date Open, non- profit, community- driven organization Website and registry localization for multiple languages in process
  5. 5. Eliminate name ambiguity
  6. 6. More problems with names And on and on it goes … The top 129 surnames are shared by 87% of the Han-population in China. Spanish names: Alejandro Rodríguez de la Peña y de Ybarra What is first name and what are the surnames? Half of the population on the Korean peninsula share the three most common surnames (Kim, Lee, Park) P.

  7. 7. Funders • Funders are embedding ORCID identifiers in their grant submission systems and awardee databases Universities • Opportunities for integration with: • Researcher profile systems • Institutional repositories • Grants & contracts • HR systems • Safety/research conduct training & compliance Professional societies • Associations are integrating into membership renewal, publishing and meeting registration processes Publishing & repositories • Publishers are integrating into manuscript submission and author/reviewer databases • Repositories linking with deposition, search and updating • Both are linking internal ID with ORCID record ORCID is a hub connecting the research landscape

  9. 9. Distinguish yourself
  10. 10. 1. Register for an iD Registration is easy. Signing up for an ORCID iD only takes seconds. Then, enhance your ORCID record with your professional activities and begin to use your ORCID iD as you submit publications, apply for grants, and in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work.
  11. 11. You control the privacy You determine what, how, and with whom the information in your ORCID record is shared.
  12. 12. 2. Connect your ORCID iD
  13. 13. 2. Connect your ORCID iD: search and add works
  14. 14. 14 2. Connect your ORCID iD: manually add works
  15. 15. Associate your ORCID iD with ResearcherID Exchange profile and/or publication data between ORCID and ResearcherID 2. Connect your ORCID iD: link to other identifiers
  16. 16. What does an ORCID page look like?
  17. 17. ORCID Support at UCD Library
  18. 18. ORCID Support at UCD Library • Raising awareness among College Liaison Librarians • Highlighting ORCID in presentations/talks to and discussions with researchers and research administrators • Promotional campaign with OutreachTeam • “Monthly Promotion” • Posters • Flyers • Targeted emails • Promotional video ( • Social media • Plasma screens • Packages with promotional material for research administrators
