  7. 7. Who wants to know all this? OA vika 2012 • Publishers who publish researchers’ work – Accurate author info, dealing with coauthors, generally managing the peer-review & publishing process • Institutions that employ researchers – Evaluating performance of research staff, tenure decisions • Funders who give researchers money – Which PI scientists are getting funded, who are their co-applications, track which research outputs were produced by a given grant • Researchers themselves! – Automated CVs, receive credit, save time when submitting manuscripts to journals – [more stuff, see below]Research Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013
  8. 8. The connectivity challenge OA vika 2012 • Number of authors and other scholarly contributors is increasing • Number & kinds of works they contribute to is increasing • Names are ambiguous --> author identification is problematic Credit: http://techtips.salon.com/set-up-d-link-router-4840.htmlResearch Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013
  9. 9. The problem with names OA vika 2012 One name, multiple persons: J. Smith <-- author on total ~19K papers in PubMed One person, multiple names: Y. Wang <-- author on ~4,000 G.

  12. 12. What is ORCID? OA vika 2012 • ORCID = Open Researcher & Contributor ID initiative • International, interdisciplinary organization involving multiple stakeholders: – Research institutions, libraries, funding organizations, publishers, intermediares and individual researchers • Started in late 2009 to solve the name ambiguity problem in scholarly communication. • Incorporated as a non-profit with a Board of Directors in August 2010. – http://about.orcid.org/about/what-is-orcid/governanceResearch Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013

  22. 22. Benefits to in-the-trenches researchers? OA vika 2012 • ORCID by itself does not do much - the value proposition is really integration with other systems • #1 Integrations by traditional players in research – There is buy-in from stakeholders, so ORCID will become part of workflows – Researchers will benefit from streamlined interactions, more accurate data, less form-filling <-- save people timeResearch Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013
  23. 23. Benefits to in-the-trenches researchers? OA vika 2012 • ORCID by itself does not do much - the value proposition is really integration with other systems • #2 Integration by new/emerging players in research – New opportunities, innovative stuff happening – Lots of small-scale, diverse scholarly services and platforms that can benefit from integration with and build on top of ORCID as a platform - the Long Tail? – Researchers will be able to create new connections with alternative research outputs, expand their network, show impact, get credit for other stuff besides traditional publicationsResearch Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013
  24. 24. Benefits to in-the-trenches researchers? OA vika 2012 • #3 Universal springboard for less Net-savvy academics to “get connected” on the Web and become part of the network – ORCID profile <-- serve as lowest common denominator ? – Lower barrier of entry if there is a SINGLE base service they can use which • many or most other scholars use too, and • is supported by the organizations that matter to them in their work (publishers, funders etc.) • why? more visible so others can more easily find them – read and build on their work and cite them – seek collaborations – career opportunitiesResearch Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013
  25. 25. Facebook analogy: “ gotta be there coz everybody else is on there. Even my mother!” <-- network effect OA vika 2012Research Trends / Elsevier Labs Virtual Seminar - The Individual and Scholarly Networks, New York, Jan 22 2013
