      Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

      At present, the current stable version of the ORCID API, v1.2, does not make it possible to clearly state which items have been added or updated to the ORCID record via the ORCID API. (This is what such notifications are indicating.)

      The simplest method to determine what was added or updated at present is by checking the creation date (via more details view). The modification date can also be viewed via the ORCID public API.

      The API version currently in development, v2.0, supports the addition and updating of individual works items. It is possible that this could result in more informative notifications.

      We would appreciate hearing further suggestions on how the addition/update notifications can improve. What information do you expect to see in them?

      Thanks for your comment, anonymous. Because of the limitations of the 1.2 version of the API, yes, if you want to see what has been newly added, then you will need to check the creation date of each item.

      You can get the details for all of your works at once using the public API, e.g. https://pub.orcid.org/v2.0/xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx/works and then searching for the matching creation date. That us API only, however. In the user interface, you would need to click on each item's details view for more information.

      Perhaps a feature that could help with those issues might be a view option to sort works by date created and date updated? If you think that'd be useful, why not submit it as an iDea? : )

      Warm regards,
      ORCID Community Team

      Thanks for your comment, Daniel Himmelstein. Do you mean the identifier of the new item that has been added to the ORCID record?

      Please note that ORCID does not create new ORCID records (ORCID iDs) -- only you can do that. https://orcid.org/blog/2015/12/04/importance-opt

        Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

        Currently the ORCID Registry processes all identifiers as being case sensitive. This is a known issue — some identifiers are case sensitive, whilst others are not.

        Our team recognize this issue and will be addressing it by cataloguing our identifiers, their case sensitivity, and other validity issues, then putting these into effect and potentially sharing some of the data in the identifiers API (https://pub.orcid.org/v2.0/identifiers/ ).

        We currently have looking into the identifiers scheduled to commence April 2017 and shall update you when we are further into the project.

        Warm regards,
        ORCID Community Team

        Reposting Stuart Ray's comment from a related thread (https://support.orcid.org/forums/175591/suggestions/3342355), on March 17, 2017 4:32 PM:

        > It appears (from my profile) that the DOI merge function fails to match (and merge) duplicates when there are differences in DOI capitalization from different sources (e.g. Scopus vs. ResearcherID vs. CrossRef).

        Many thanks for your notice -- it is the same issue as above, and we have started gathering the information we'll use to address this and related issues.

          Thank you for the suggestion.

          It is unclear where the checksums (to populate the additional field) would come from. Could you please provide more information or examples?

          ORCID (APAC/MEA)AdminORCID (APAC/MEA) (Admin, ORCID) commented  · 

          Thanks for your comment. Are you aware of organisations currently adding data to users' ORCID records which also store and would transmit checksums as a part of the metadata?

          Many thanks,

            Thanks again for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

            We’re looking into this issue and would like to raise a question for your consideration. What do you think should be done in instances of open end dates? For example, an employment may be on an open-ended contract — should this be understood to be active and therefore floated to the top of the list?

            Many thanks for your interest.

            Warm regards,
            ORCID Community Team

            We have received this comment separately in response to this question:

            after thinking about this issue, I would say yes: float entries without end date to the top. If several entries have no end date, they can still be sorted by their start date -- same for entries with identical end date, as suggested in the original post.

              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

                Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

                We'd like to get your thoughts on how this could be implemented. The weightiness of one type over another may differ between user. How might the relative importance of work types be measured? Would users be able to go through the list of all work types and set their preferred display?

                  Just to give an update on this project:

                  We have a demo of the ORCID badge widget that you can test by going to https://orcid.org/my-orcid?widget and clicking on the link to “Share your ORCID iD on other sites.”

                  Some of the feedback that we’ve received thus far is that it is quite large, and that it does not coincide with current iD display guidelines.

                  We expect to return to this project after we have finished deployment of the 2.0 API and have released the updated display guidelines in 2017.

                  If you have any feedback on this feature please let us know either here or at support@orcid.org

                  Warm regards,
                  ORCID Community Team

                  Thanks for your query, and thanks for raising it. No, the badge widget is not yet deployed.

                  We expect that it will be on the back burner until the new display guidelines are released in the next year so that we can bring its display in line with the trademark & iD display guidelines (https://orcid.org/trademark-and-id-display-guidelines) -- iD icon followed the http(s) URI, both hyperlinked to the record.

                  It's also expected to be smaller, in pace with feedback here and from current testers.

                    Hello,

                    Thank you for your suggestion for improving the ORCID Registry.

                    Could you suggest some layouts that you would expect to see as an email signature? And by ‘ORCID logo’, might you refer to the ORCID iD icon? (Green circle with the white iD)

                    Thank you.

                    Thanks Mark. We're going to add this to the list of suggested features for the Registry.

                    In the meantime, you may be interested in the ORCID Widget, which is currently a hidden feature. When you're signed in, go to https://orcid.org/my-orcid?widget and click "Share your ORCID iD on other sites" to access the widget.

                      Thank you for your suggestion on improving the ORCID Registry.

                      We have an update (March 2017) that the current version of the API search in 2.0 includes searching works by identifiers and title: https://members.orcid.org/api/tutorial/search-orcid-registry

                      (All identifiers can be used. The current list is at https://pub.orcid.org/v2.0/identifiers/ )

                      We’ve also added suggestions for increasing the searchable works metadata to things to consider for future development. These would generally be understood to be the supported fields supported in ORCID (see our Works XSD: https://github.com/ORCID/ORCID-Source/blob/master/orcid-model/src/main/resources/record_2.0/work-2.0.xsd ).

                      Note that author would generally not be one considered as we do not have an author field. We do support the addition of contributors, but do not have clear guidance on the at present— we expect this to come out of our discussions related to Project credit, etc. — see our User/Member Interface Improvements goal for 2017: https://trello.com/c/mBcwieED/10

                          What are your thoughts for slightly amending this to be adding works using BibTeX?

                          This could include sources of BibTeX in addition to Google Scholar. It could also mention common BibTeX issues, such as BibTeX exported from EndNote not being immediately able to be imported and requiring the use of a filter. (KAUST has kindly made a modified BibTeX filter for EndNote available: http://libguides.kaust.edu.sa/orcid )

                            To clarify, your suggestion is to offer fuzzier searches so that either "Mabett", "Mabbet", or "Mabet" may return "Mabbett" as a possible result -- is that correct?

                                Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

                                We will be forming a working group shortly to look at what other items researchers should be able to add to their ORCID record, including digital certificates and we will keep you updated.

                                In the meantime, please suggest the types of certificates you’d like to be able to associate with your ORCID record and why this would be valuable.

                                We also suggest looking at a post shared in the comments:
