I suggest that...

make the site validate correctly with W3C

ORCID pages do not seem to be valid HTML5 according to
http://validator.w3.org

E.g. mine reports many errors, mostly unescaped & symbols and img tags without alt text, which should both be fairly easy to fix, http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Forcid.org%2F0000-0002-7676-7860

        Hi Andy,

        Thanks for the reminder. We're going to flag this so our team can get an update this quarter, but we probably will not be able to get a response until after the release of the 2.0 API this month.

        The 2.0 API is a major update which will significantly change how integrators interact with the ORCID Registry. However subsequent versions are expected to come at a much faster rate as the changes will be more incremental.

        best,
        ORCID Community Team

        3.5 years on, the site still does not validate. Please expedite a fix. valid HTML helps accessibility.

        A simple, public, read-only API (exactly like Jan suggested here) that requires no access token and simply returns the data already available on the public web page, but in JSON format, would make ORCID orders of magnitude more useful. In particular, it would make it possible to write very easy-to-use local tools, e.g. departmental CMS plugins that users can use to import their ORCID works list into their own home page. I don't want every user of such a plugin to have to set up an access token themselves first, and hard-wiring my own one in such an open-source tool also seems silly.

        Why even have an access token to access public data? What purpose does it serve?

        You need data stamps on these items presented on the parent page.

        Has this problem from 18 months ago been looked at?
