I suggest that...

Display conference names in list of publications

In publication data that is added to ORCID by Crossref many of my conference papers appear in the following format:

Planar L-Drawings of Directed Graphs
2018 | book-chapter
DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-73915-1_36

or, similarly, in data added by Scopus:

Simultaneous drawing of planar graphs ...
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries ...)
2015 | book
EID: 2-s2.0-84923667076

For most readers, however, it would be important to see at which conference these articles have appeared! This data is not accessible, even when you click on "details". In particular, both of the above articles have appeared in the same conference series (LNCS), so they should be formatted similarly.

Ideally, the entries should look as follows. It would be fine with me to drop the long name of the conference and to only display the abbreviation and year (e.g., GD 2017). Note that the year of the conference is not necessarily the year of the publication (e.g., for post-conference proceedings).

Planar L-Drawings of Directed Graphs
International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization
GD 2017
Lecture Notes in Computer Science, volume 10692
2018 | conference article
DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-73915-1_36

Simultaneous drawing of planar graphs ...
International Workshop on Algorithms and Computation
WALCOM 2015
Lecture Notes in Computer Science, volume 8973
2015 | conference article
DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-15612-5_20

I would really appreciate an improvement in the data quality of ORCID in the future.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your suggestion and please apologize our delayed reply.

    We have marked this iDea as declined since this functionality is already available. Member organizations can add the conference name (including the conference year) on the “journal title” field, as we indicate in our documentation: https://github.com/ORCID/ORCID-Source/blob/master/orcid-model/src/main/resources/record_2.1/work-2.1.xsd (row 278). For example:

    Drawing binary tanglegrams: An experimental evaluation
    2009 Proceedings of the 11th Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiments, ALENEX 2009
    2009 | conference-paper

    EID: 2-s2.0-67650201268

    We will follow up with Scopus and Crossref to request that they correct the metadata of the works in your record.

    If you have any other questions or comments, you can contact us directly at support[at]orcid.org

    Best regards,
    ORCID Community Team
