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".

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.

      Thanks for the suggestion. We do think this is a good idea, however it’s somewhat complicate for us to add an additional cookie to our cookie policy which is needed to offer this option. I’m making this idea as under reivew while we consider this. In the meantime you may want to look into using a browser that will automatically remember your username.

      • Could you try to add Bluebook citation format as an option for works?

        Bluebook is not offered as an option for citation format but it is common among legal scholars.

          The previous response did not address this suggestion, so we will re-open it.

          We have added Bluebook citation formats to our list of improvements to consider in the future for the ORCID Registry.

          At present, you can use “unspecified” for bluebook citations.

          Warm regards,
          ORCID Community Engagement and Support

          The list of work types offered in ORCID is from the CASRAI Output Standards, which you can find out more about at http://dictionary.casrai.org/research-personnel-profile/contributions/outputs.
          Rather than trying to maintain an inclusive list of work-types, ORCID has decided to use this vocabulary so we can focus on our main goal of providing unique identifiers. As the CASRAI vocabulary is updated, we will also update the work-type options in ORCID.

        • Default "email" privacy level to "limited"

          I am working in entegrating an external service to ORCID, by letting local users authenticate via ORCID's OAuth.
          Since we keep track of user email address, it would be extremely handy if by default email addresses were available in ORCID's profile, so that third party services like ours could match local users with existing profiles.

            This is a great suggestion, but one that needs review before we can act on it. As ORCID is an international undertaking we have to comply with privacy regulations in numerous countries, some of which affect how we are able to share email address, even with trusted parties.

            Warm regards,

          • Implement client-side OAuth authentication

            So that client-side (usually Javascript) applications can interact with the ORCID API, please support client-side OAuth authentication.

            Google's developer site has a good overview of how it should work: https://developers.google.com/accounts/docs/OAuth2UserAgent

            • make the site validate correctly with W3C

              ORCID pages do not seem to be valid HTML5 according to
              http://validator.w3.org

              E.g. mine reports many errors, mostly unescaped & symbols and img tags without alt text, which should both be fairly easy to fix, http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Forcid.org%2F0000-0002-7676-7860

              • Roles in the "add manually" section

                Can you include "Acknowledged" or "Contributor" to the roles dropdown so you can claim papers you helped with, but didn't qualify for authorship

                  We’ve combined a couple suggestions about researcher roles into this idea where we can keep you updated with progress. ORCID is planning to review the role options that we capture and how those roles are displayed shortly. We will be including all the ideas proposed in the forum in that review and will provide an update once that review is done. If you have any more suggestions for roles please leave them as a comment on this idea.

                    Thanks for submitting your idea to improve the ORCID Registry. Starting the week of Nov 12, and continuing weekly through December the Registry Stability Working Group will meet to help us prioritize all the functions and bugs that have been submitted, at that time you might see the status of your idea change after the Working Group assigns it a priority. While we want to get to every suggestion, our limited staff time means that some features will have to wait until future development cycles. The full process of how an idea turns into an active part of the ORCID Registry is described in the article How are new features decided?

                    ORCID works with the involvement and support of the community, and we appreciate your taking the time to help make the Registry better. In the three weeks since our launch, we’ve received a lot of great suggestions for the…
