Add support for RIS-formatted citations
The site currently has support for BibTeX and human-readable formatted citation formats. Add the ability to enter citations in RIS format.
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 system, as well as notifications of a few bugs, and we are excited to start incorporating user recommendations into the Registry.
Thanks again for your involvement in helping to advance the ORCID Registry. We love to read your ideas and will respond to them as quickly as possible. And, if you have any additional suggestions for us, submit them now so they can be included in this month’s review.

My institution (Universidade de Sao Paulo) is an ORCID Member and we really need a way to import data in RIS format in ORCID platform.
Please, think about it. To develop an exporter to BibTex will be a hard work, but we have a RIS exporter ready to be used.

This iDea is still under consideration, since we've decided to prioritize the development of other features at the moment. In the meantime, you can export works into BibteX files or other systems which can create RIS citations.
ORCID is an open system, and we are always happy to receive contributions from the community. If you would like to get more involved in the development of this initiative please let us know!

Once the basic structure of importing tag-defined metadata (like RIS) is finished, it will be trivial to also allow ENW-tagged format metadata (native EndNote export format) to also be imported.
It would also be quite nice to allow the _export_ of ORCID lists in standard formats (BibTeX, ENW, MODS, RIS, etc.). Further, it would be great to have one's ORCID works listed in the page head in both unAPI and COinS formats for direct automated import into Citavi, Mendeley, Papers, Zotero, and others.
