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.

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

  1. Default "email" privacy level to "limited"

    I am working in entegrating an external service to ORCID, by letting local users authenticate via ORCID's OAuth.
    Since we keep track of user email address, it would be extremely handy if by default email addresses were available in ORCID's profile, so that third party services like ours could match local users with existing profiles.

      We’d like to update on this suggestion:

      It is unlikely that we will set the default email visibility to allow trusted parties to view it. However, we will soon be working on a feature to allow clients to request permission to access the individual’s email address, even if that address is normally hidden. You can follow the progress on this on our Current Development Trello board at:

      Warm regards,
      ORCID Community Team

      This is a great suggestion, but one that needs review before we can act on it. As ORCID is an international undertaking we have to comply with privacy regulations in numerous countries, some of which affect how we are able to share email address, even with trusted parties.

    • Add Digital Certificates

      Either create a digital certificate associated with the ID, or allow user to identify an existing certificate to associate with the ID. DigiCert and InCommon are examples of certificate sources, but others are possible.

        Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

        We will be forming a working group shortly to look at what other items researchers should be able to add to their ORCID record, including digital certificates and we will keep you updated.

        In the meantime, please suggest the types of certificates you’d like to be able to associate with your ORCID record and why this would be valuable.

        We also suggest looking at a post shared in the comments:
