I suggest that...

use ISO 8601 on the home page

http://orcid.org/ it says

12/08/2014

could be 12 August or December 8

use non-ambiguous ISO 8601 format instead. Also avoids bias towards US or European format.

    To update on this iDea: We’ve started development to use ISO 8601 on the orcid.org pages (https://trello.com/c/rRK3Nx5N/3587 ). Let us know if you find other pages on orcid.org which are not using ISO 8601.

    We’re reopening this request as we’ve been notified that there are some dates which are not ISO 8601 complaint. We are looking to address this issue.

    We’ve thus far found two:
    https://orcid.org (news list, right column)
    https://orcid.org/statistics

    If you see any others on orcid.org or members.orcid.org, please let us know.

    (n.b. support.orcid.org is hosted on a third-party service, so we need to investigate whether they can enable ISO-8601 on the forum section of the site.)

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team
