I suggest you ...

Need way for end user to export users own complete record (xml/yaml/json okay).

Need way for end user to export users own complete record (xml/yaml/json okay).

This is for archival/backup/data verification/comparision and other purposes.

Bonus points for also allowing an edited complete record to be uploaded to replace the current one.

Note: This is probably possible from the API, but there should be a visible user driven methos to do this.

    Hi,

    Thanks for this suggestion. As you mentioned, a user can access their ORCID record via the ORCID API- instructions on how to do that are at http://support.orcid.org/knowledgebase/articles/132271-retrieving-data-with-the-public-api

    We like your suggestion of offering a way to run this export in the user interface as well, but we will not be able to work on that right now. Our current priority is getting information into ORCID records and that’s where we’re focusing our development.

    Best,

        If this can be done via the API, then presumably there's nothing stopping a third party from providing this as a service - perhaps a contender for the next hackathon?
