I suggest that...

Affiliation search - limit to current

API search for Affiliation gives result set that includes records where affiliation matches records having a matching affiliation in the past (but current affiliation(s) is not a match).

Enhancement request - ability to limit affiliation searches to records that match only most current affiliation(s) in researcher's ORCID record (i.e. exclude records where affiliation match was in the past / or is not current).

As suggested from support, one possible way would be to hook into where Affiliation has no ending date or is null on ending date.

    Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry’s API search.

    We’ll take this suggestion into consideration as we look into further improvements of our affiliations search feature and will update when we have further information.

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team
