I suggest that...

What about linking between Orchid and DBLP? This would be very helpful for computer scientists!

DBLP is a high-quality online computer science library at http://dblp.dagstuhl.de/
Bringing all entries from DBLP into Orchid would help a large community.

    Hi,
    Thanks for submitting your idea to improve the ORCID Registry. We agree that allowing ORCID to link to other profile systems and identifier schemes is important, and would like your help making your idea to connect to DBLP a reality.

    Linking with other systems is not something ORCID can do unilaterally. Systems integration requires that we establish a partnership with the other organization.

    To start the ball rolling, ORCID needs two things: a short specification describing how ORCID should interact with DBLP, and also contact information for a person at DBLP to explore this further.

    Could you provide us with this information or help direct us to who to talk with?

    Best,
    Ana

        I also thought about such an integration and therefore I try to outline my idea. I agree that DBLP is a very good source for bibliographic metadata and they really care about author disambiguation, see e.g.: http://dblp.dagstuhl.de/pers/hd/z/Zhang:Li

        DBLP is already providing RSS Feeds for each person, e.g. http://dblp.dagstuhl.de/pers/xs/z/Zhang_0001:Li.rss . In the description of each item there is a link to the metadata from DBLP, which are provided in several formats e.g. BibTeX.

        Thus, I would suggest to create a possibility for the users to specify their DBLP ID and activate Auto-Update from DBLP. This way new publications will appear in DBLP and in their RSS-feed, which will then trigger some mechanism on your side to import this items into ORCID. The really nice thing about DBLP is that they are trying to cover all publishers and also less known conference proceedings, i.e. it might be already now be possible for computer scientists to achieve a completely automated up-to-date ORCID profile.

        As the metadata of DBLP is constantly improving, one might also want to synchronize at some later time. But I don't know what is feasible to achieve here or if the RSS-Feed is again triggered in such events.

        Contacting DBLP is very easy and you can even try to reach out on Twitter @dblp_org to them. I also know some persons there and I could also help you to contact them further. Just let me know.
