  1. 1. Implementing ORCID at Chalmers Researcher identifications and ORCID – national implementations, Helsinki 2014-09-29 Jonas Gilbert Chalmers library
  2. 2. Chalmers University of Technology • 10,000 students • 2,000 researchers • 2,500 scholarly publications (2013) • Chalmers Publications Library (CPL) – repository & publication database • Open Access mandate • Special focus on bibliometrics
  3. 3. ORCID in Sweden  National study: ”Author Identifiers and Publication Databases” (2012) • Recommends that ORCID should be the standard used for managing author identities in SwePub and the publication databases in Sweden  Swedish Research Council (VR) • makes ORCID mandatory in the new PRISMA grant application portal (Q3 2014)  SwePub, national publication database • ORCID support for contributors in v. 2 (2014-)  SweCRIS, new national CRIS system (Q4 2014)  SWAMID, Swedish Academic Identification • ORCID support in SAML2 SSO
  4. 4. Swedish Research Council – National Information Architecture
  5. 5. ORCID @ CHALMERS  ORCID institutional membership (2013) • Creator License, access to Member API • co-ordinated by the library, university mandate  Pilot study (2013) • batch creation of ORCIDs for one department  Create & connect service (2014-) • developed by the library and the central IT/HR dept, with a focus on identity infrastructure • ORCIDs stored and managed in the central HR system (PDB) • connected in repository & publication/metrics databases • one-stop solution for all things concerning ORCIDs at Chalmers
  6. 6. Background for membership • Reason for membership? • As participants in the project 2012, we were following the launch and development of ORCID. • Interest and positive response from univ & dep management and researchers, when we presented ORCID. • Support for staff that wanted to create ORCID. • Preparation to support ORCID as part of national infrastructure. • Support from legal office. Concerns regarding transfer of personal data outside of EU.
  7. 7. Pilot study (2013) • Department of Space and Geo Sciences, approx. 150 researchers • Initiative from the library and from the head of department • Object of the pilot was to try out the API and workflows and to learn about responses from the from researchers • Batch creation of ORCIDs, using the Member API • Mixed result, slow responses in some cases • Conclusions • early adoption - too early? • creation of ORCIDs should probably be initiated by the individual researcher in the first phase
  8. 8. ORCID Claim profile verification e-mail Från: [] Ämne: [ORCID] Claim your newly-created ORCID Account Dear Vera Sandberg, Chalmers University of Technology created an ORCID Account for you. This account provides you with a unique research identifier (an ORCID iD) that you can use in your publications and grants, and a place (an ORCID Record) to list information about your professional research activities. WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO? Within the next 10 days, please review the information that Chalmers University of Technology entered as a courtesy on your behalf. Once you have logged in the first time, your account will become active, and you will have complete control over the privacy of your record and the information it contains.

  9. 9. Create & connect service
  10. 10. Create ORCID • authentication • SWAMID SAML2 • name, Chalmers ID, email, (publication profile)
  11. 11. Create ORCID • Initial ORCID creation • New ID stored in the central HR system (PDB) but not yet activated
  12. 12. Connect to Chalmers
  13. 13. Connect to Chalmers • ORCID connected and activated in local systems
  14. 14. ORCID-ID recorded in Chalmers person database
  15. 15. ORCID-ID recorded in Chalmers publication database
  16. 16. ORCID @ Chalmers SWAMID CPL SwePub CRIS PDB Prisma SweCRIS OpenAIRE CORDIS Metrics IDP Repositories FundRef ORCID API
  17. 17. Some thoughts • ORCID is a new infrastructure and is still in development. • Very good support from ORCID staff during implementation. • ORCID model requires involvement from the researchers. But: What’s in it for me? We still need to show practical value for the individual researcher. • ORCID should be viewed as a part of an evolving standardization and improvement for the management of research information.

Editor's Notes

  • Project in 2012 -
  • Learned basically two things: probably need to show the value more clearly (early stage, “whats in it for me(), “didn’t take notice of the claim mail”, in order to do this in a sustainable way, the creation of a new ORCID should probably be initiated by the researcher.
    Lookes at the legal aspects (opt-out)
  • ORCID @ Chalmers-perspective, the most important actors and services from our perspective and their relations
    PDB – SWAMID. Looking at including ORCID as a single sign on attribute – services that support SWAMID (funders) should be able to obtain ORCID automatically when a user signs in.
    CPL – ORCID is stored in the author records
    Changing, new infrastructure
    VR – ORCID used both in the grant application system, Prisma, and in the project database.
    SwePub – 2.0 in development, ORCID not mandatory at the moment, but supported in the new format (primary author identifier) and highly recommended. Analysis on a national level. OAI-PMH MODS. v 1 just a publication database.
    Repositories – discussions with ArXiv about using ORCID for identifying Chalmers publications
    Research data (data sets) missing.
