Thanks again for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.
To update, contributors is a field that organizations posting funding information can add to funding items on the ORCID record. (See the XSD for fundings: https://github.com/ORCID/ORCID-Source/blob/master/orcid-model/src/main/resources/record_2.0/funding-2.0.xsd )
In addition, contributorship is something that we hope to improve on the ORCID Registry in 2017 as a part of implementing Project CRediT: https://trello.com/c/mBcwieED/10
We’ll update you as we get further into this project. In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions or comments about contributors in fundings data.
