Pubmed search integration
Allow search by name to select publications from results
Thank you for submitting your idea to the ORCID forum. Linking works in the ORCID record to document identifiers is important. We already link to CrossRef DOIs, and have been working with the community to link to other ID schemes, including PubMed.
As David Lawrence notes, the PubMed and Medline XML DTD schemas now accommodate Author IDs, including ORCID iDs. One possible next step is to include a look-up in ORCID to be able to search and/or link an ORCID work to a PubMed ID.
These integrations involve two systems and cannot be accomplished unilaterally by ORCID. We have begun conversations with NIH to identify technical contacts with whom we can collaborate to perform this integration.
In the meantime, what would be helpful is your thoughts on specifications for the integration. Just link of ID? Other fields such as grant number? Also search of PubMed? Anything else?

The functionality I want wouldn't require collaboration with Pubmed, just a simple interface that allows you to for example provide a list of PMIDs so you can automatically add them to your ORCID list of publications.Why is this not implemented yet?
Kazmi, you can add works from EPMC to ORCID at https://europepmc.org/orcid/import or by selecting Europe Pub Med Central from the search and link options when you are logged into your ORCID record.

Just came across first Pubmed-XML with ORCID identifier:

It would be very helpful in we could search PubMed from our ORCID page, click on those papers that are ours, and automatically have them migrate to our ORCID bibliography.
<contrib-id contrib-id-type="orcid">0000-0002-4510-0385</contrib-id> - http://jats.nlm.nih.gov/publishing/tag-library/1.0/?attr=contrib-id-type specifically mentions ORCID (not sure about capitalisation).

Tagging guidelines for this are currently unclear. PMC says they would want ORICDs tagged as follows:
"<contrib-id> is the way we would prefer to have an ORCID or other contributor identifier tagged."
PubMed seems to want this:
"The <Identifier Source="ORCID"> is an element in the Abstract submission XML for PubMed, not PMC,"
and highwire are advocating using this:
"Content XML will be e.g. <contributor><ext-link ext-link-type="orcid">"
It would be great to supply a set of tagged examples, and get everyone to impliment the standard the same way.

It should also be possible to get PMID and PMCID where available for entries already in ORCID. These should then be displayed as hyperlinks to PubMed/PubMedCentral.
A related trivial point, I think the "DOI: ..." text should be hyperlinked to "http://dx.doi.org/...", as well as or instead of the icon that links to full text.

From the PMID each metadata item can be imported into its own field and to the proper db table.
Effective early next year, PubMed will have an ORCID ID field available for each author record. For authors with IDs, ORCHID identifiers will be a part of the article metadata downloaded.
