    Thank you for submitting your idea to improve the ORCID Registry. We agree that h-index and other measures of research impact are important and can be improved by use of the ORCID registry. However, usage stats are not in scope for ORCID. Instead, we encourage third parties to use ORCID data to derive usage statistics.

    In fact, algorithms for measuring usage are being implemented by a number of organizations, several of which are benefiting from ORCID data. In addition, there are a number of sites that are (or will soon be) consuming ORCID data to support calculation of a whole range of research metrics. Check out the Impact Story or PLOS websites for example.
