Allow authors to list related work (e.g. a dataset or supplementary material) under a publication in a related works or tabbed section.
At the moment every work shows up the same. It would be great if you could link subsidiary or related works under a publication, for example, a link to the Dryad or Figshare source for the underlying data or to a preprint repository for an author manuscript.24 votes0 comments · * Editing/Managing Linked Professional Activities · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
This is a great suggestion and one that’s in our long term plan. In addition to linking works we want to be able to link funding items that may have support the works and create other connections between items on an ORCID record. While we won’t be able to add this soon as we have so much other functionality we’re working on, this is part of the plan for ORCID.
In particular, when clicking on the background outside of the editing box, nothing should happen. This often is done by mistake, and all changes are lost.
If there are "save" and "cancel" buttons, then only these should do anything: not clicking elsewhere, not hitting return.
I also notice that "website design" is not one of the categories, so I posted it here.9 votes2 comments · * Editing/Managing Linked Professional Activities · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.
This is a good idea, but isn’t something that we presently have the capacity to work toward at the moment. We’re going to mark it as under review, so that we can consider it as an improvement after our current release cycle for version 2.0 of our API.
For more on what we’re working on at ORCID, follow our current development board at:

If you want to add a book chapter, you want the title of the collection to appear immediately below your chapter title. This can be done by adding the title of the book to the 'Journal title' section of the manual addition page. Might you change this label to 'Journal or book title'?1 vote0 comments · * Editing/Managing Linked Professional Activities · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
Thanks again for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.
We have implemented the first phase of this improvement. Now when you choose a work type related to a non-journal publication, the field display title for “Journal title” will dynamically update to a relevant title, e.g. “Conference title”, “Book title”, and “Publisher”.
There has been an additional call for the form to dynamically update based on the work category selected, e.g. choosing the category “Conference” would change the field display name of “Journal title” to “Conference title”. At present, one must first choose the category “Conference” and then one of the conference work types in order for the title to dynamically update.
We’ll share more news as this feature is further developed. Thanks again for your suggestion and support.
