ORCID author identifier pilot project: implementation and cost-benefit analysis
Recently a report on the benefits of ORCID (author identifier) implementation in higher education was published.
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and – through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission – supports automated linkages between the author and his/her professional activities ensuring that the work is recognized. ORCID is a non-profit organization supported by a global community of organizational members, including research organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders in the research ecosystem.
How can researchers make their outputs visible?
Ross Mounce, Community Coordinator for Open Science at the Open Knowledge Foundation, explains how to ensure discoverable access to research outputs. He highlights the metadata power of institutional repositories and other services like Zenodo. With a combination of preprint & postprint postings, it is easy to make your research freely available.
