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.

  1. Searching Orcid ids should be case-insensitive

    Searching an Orcid id, for example, 0000-0002-5781-158x, does not match the correct author but 0000-0002-5781-158X does.

    • Add IPv6 support for the orcid.org domain

      Currently the website is only served and accessible over IPv4 and it would be great to have IPv6 supported for forward compatibility.

      • ORCID account have a search facility for the works

        ORCID account should have a search facility for the works so that it could become easier for an account holder to navigate through the works and manage them.

        The user should be able to search through own works that they have added (or granted others to add) to their personal ORCID record. The user should be able to search by the title of the work, work type and year

          Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

          We have updated the iDea with your added input. Could you please provide further information for this iDea? Do you envisage this working as a filter, e.g. display only work that are “conference abstracts”, or published in “2017”? Or do you envisage that there would be a search option in the personal ORCID record that would allow to search by a certain title, identifier, etc.?

          Many thanks for input for you and from the community.

          Warm regards,
          ORCID Community Team

        • A 'report this' button is implemented to prevent spamming the registry

          I searched the ORCID registry for "school" and lots of spam 'profiles' for driving schools, yoga schools, etc came up in the search results. For example:

          http://orcid.org/0000-0001-7582-2402
          http://orcid.org/0000-0001-9587-8075
          http://orcid.org/0000-0001-6240-8560

          ORCID has a process that runs each week aiming to identify potential suspect records, but it is dependent on keywords. I propose that ORCID implement a 'report this' button and we can crowdsource getting rid of these spam profiles?

            Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

            We shall put this as a feature under review. Let us know if you have any suggestions for how this may appear on the ORCID record.

            For now, please continue to report any suspect records to support@orcid.org, as well as any suggested keywords to add to our regular spam search.

          • Allow accented characters to be equivalent to non-accented characters in search

            We think of making all co-workers of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Hungary) have an Orcid ID. This would be great, but we have a problem. Most names in Hungary have accents (like meny names in French, German, Polish...). E.g. I am registered as István Kollár: 0000-0002-4807-0476

            In most systems, a search with unaccented characters (Istvan Kollar) returns all hit with or without accents. However, when I search for Kollar, I have no hits, even with "Also search other names" on (I do have added all these name versions). I can find my name with "Kollár" only. But…

              Hi,

              Thanks for reminding us about this bug. We’re actually in the process of switching how we do search (we’re moving from Solr to Elastic search). Once we’ve completed that update, which is scheduled for this summer, we’ll look at adjusting our search to work the way you very nicely described.

              Thanks,

            • Make organisations clickable

              Why can't I click on "Robert Gordon University" in a profile like http://orcid.org/0000-0002-0570-7086 to see, which researchers in a certain organisation are registered in ORCID? That would be really useful for discovery purposes.

              Please put links behind the organisation's names! URIs for each institution would be helpful here, I guess.

                Hi,

                Thanks for the suggestion. We’re currently working on a way to make affiliation information searchable. After that we can think about trying to link it, though it may be a large project as one institution often has different names, or user entered a sub-organization which has a different name. But we will look into this after more pressing functionality is complete.

                Best,
