ORCID iDeas Forum

Thanks for your ideas. The process to turn an idea into an active part of the ORCID Registry is described in the article How are new features decided? (see link) While we want to get to every suggestion, our limited staff time means that some features will have to wait until future development cycles. We look forward to reading your ideas.

I suggest that...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Allow authors to list related work (e.g. a dataset or supplementary material) under a publication in a related works or tabbed section.

    At the moment every work shows up the same. It would be great if you could link subsidiary or related works under a publication, for example, a link to the Dryad or Figshare source for the underlying data or to a preprint repository for an author manuscript.

      This is a great suggestion and one that’s in our long term plan. In addition to linking works we want to be able to link funding items that may have support the works and create other connections between items on an ORCID record. While we won’t be able to add this soon as we have so much other functionality we’re working on, this is part of the plan for ORCID.

      Best,

    • When editing, only the explicit "save" or "cancel" should do anything.

      In particular, when clicking on the background outside of the editing box, nothing should happen. This often is done by mistake, and all changes are lost.

      If there are "save" and "cancel" buttons, then only these should do anything: not clicking elsewhere, not hitting return.

      I also notice that "website design" is not one of the categories, so I posted it here.

        Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

        This is a good idea, but isn’t something that we presently have the capacity to work toward at the moment. We’re going to mark it as under review, so that we can consider it as an improvement after our current release cycle for version 2.0 of our API.

        For more on what we’re working on at ORCID, follow our current development board at:

      • change an element of the form relating to manual additions

        If you want to add a book chapter, you want the title of the collection to appear immediately below your chapter title. This can be done by adding the title of the book to the 'Journal title' section of the manual addition page. Might you change this label to 'Journal or book title'?

          Thanks again for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

          We have implemented the first phase of this improvement. Now when you choose a work type related to a non-journal publication, the field display title for “Journal title” will dynamically update to a relevant title, e.g. “Conference title”, “Book title”, and “Publisher”.

          There has been an additional call for the form to dynamically update based on the work category selected, e.g. choosing the category “Conference” would change the field display name of “Journal title” to “Conference title”. At present, one must first choose the category “Conference” and then one of the conference work types in order for the title to dynamically update.

          We’ll share more news as this feature is further developed. Thanks again for your suggestion and support.

          Warm regards,
          ORCID Community Team
