Vote now: How-to videos

A frequent request we get from researchers and members is quick and easy demonstration of the basic features of an ORCID record: registration, what they should do after registering, and how to use search and link wizards. We are developing a series of short (30-60 second) how-to videos which users will be able to access directly from their ORCID record and from our Knowledge Base. We completed our first round of how-to videos in 2016 and will open a second round in 2017. Submit your ideas for our next videos — we’d love to hear them!

For more information, see our announcement: Vote now for your most wanted how-to videos.
