I suggest that...

Import and sync data from LinkedIn

Like many people, I already have my education, job experience and publications stored in a LinkedIn profile. I don't want to have to maintain this information in two places, so I would like:

- a way of automatically importing data from my LinkedIn page, and
- a way of keeping the data synced between the two accounts.

Other proposals have suggested similar things for Google Scholar (http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/3265305-let-people-draw-in-information-from-their-google-s), Mendeley (http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/3265916-enable-profile-and-publications-import-from-mendel), and Bibtex (http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/3271362-import-from-bibtex-ris-mods-etc-is-essential-to).

There is also a related proposal for the opposite concept of LinkedIn implementing ORCID profiles (http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/3282340-encourage-linkedin-to-implement-orcid-so-its-easie).

    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestion, we’d love to build a connection with LinkedIn too. But, as I’m sure you saw in the reply to the other iDeas you mentioned, linking with other systems to either push or pull data is not something ORCID can do unilaterally. Systems integration requires that we establish a partnership with the other organization. If we’re able to set up a partnership with LinkedIn we can pursue this, but until then we don’t have a way to facilitate connecting the two systems.

    Best,
    -Catalina
