ORCID iDeas Forum

Thanks for your ideas. The process to turn an idea into an active part of the ORCID Registry is described in the article How are new features decided? (see link) While we want to get to every suggestion, our limited staff time means that some features will have to wait until future development cycles. We look forward to reading your ideas.

I suggest that...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      • Name and link

        Hi,
        I have following suggestions.
        Please provide space just bellow Name to describe "Who am I ". It will be also help full to include personal l links.
        Also I am wondering how about giving space to include google scholar citation link? something like this: http://scholar.google.co.in/citations?user=0wvZB7AAAAAJ

        One of my earlier suggestion is "please provide space to include photo of researcher just above name"

        Thank you
        Sincerely
        Veeranagouda Yaligara

          Thanks again for your suggestion.

          Based on feedback from you and others, we have completed this project to include the following:

          • A free text space on the main column of your ORCID record to include biographical information about yourself
          • The “Websites” section on the left column of your ORCID record to add links to personal websites, your profiles on other systems which have not build links to ORCID, etc.

          For more on this, see:

        • Clarify if an ORCID represent an individual as a person or just as a researcher

          It should be made clear (in the FAQ?) what an ORCID represent. It is currently unclear if it represents a person, or just that person while acting as a researcher.

          My best guess is the second - so it would be somewhat wrong for me to use my ORCID when describing the creator of my family photos.

          It is also currently somewhat unclear if an ORCID defines the same person under multiple names (I understand it does, but only because I added both my names for my ORCID)

          The discussion at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-lod/2013Mar/0038.html highlights the need for clarity on such…

            An ORCID iD can be used with any works or activities you want, and it can represent whatever you think makes the sense to integrate with your own research. For many of our users that is just their professional works but it is up to each researcher to decide what to include their ORCID iD on.

            We do agree that the FAQ could be increased to address issues like names more directly and will look into adding to it.
