I suggest that...

Place more controls on DOI entry and group more DOI variants together

Place controls on how DOIs are entered in the manual entry form so that only the DOI (not the link form of the DOI can be entered). Right now people can enter a DOI in the forms "http://dx.doi.org/DOI" or "http://doi.org/DOI" and these will end up in their record and will not be grouped properly with duplicate records from other sources. Another fix would be to treat "http://dx.doi.org/DOI", "https://dx.doi.org/DOI", "https://doi.org/DOI", and "http://doi.org/DOI" as duplicates of DOI for the purposes of grouping.

    Thanks for your suggestion for improving the Registry.

    Our policy is to not change data that the user or member has added to the Registry. Once thing we can do is set the automatic URL that will be displayed when members or users only add the identifier and not the identifier URL. Earlier this year we updated this so the default is https://doi.org/[DOI] rather than https://dx.doi.org/[DOI]. See: https://trello.com/c/OfYenJ21/3137

    We’re also preparing a review for identifier validation and case sensitivity. (See also: https://support.orcid.org/forums/175591/suggestions/16897273 ) We’ll take this into consideration as we approach this with respect to DOIs and other identifiers.

    We’ll update this post when we have more information to share. Thanks again for your suggestion!

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team
