    Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

    ORCID does not provide an h-index or citation count. The focus of ORCID is not looking at research impact, but identifying your research outputs. ORCID's goal is to solve the name ambiguity problem in research and scholarly communications by creating a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers. That's the sixteen digit identifier you got when you registered for an ORCID record, and that identifier will be linked to your articles, grants, and other researcher output. While these outputs can be listed on your ORCID record, we don't gather information about the impact or citations of these items.

    Warm regards,

    ORCID Community Team

    Thanks for your response Nagwa. We don't provide citation reports because that is not the focus of ORCID -- and because other ORCID-integrated systems that are focussed on citations and impact measurement do those reports quite well. Some we can suggest which are integrated with ORCID include Scopus and ImpactStory.

    Warm regards,

    It sounds like an excuse :) Please do provide the citation statistics!

    Indeed, if ORCID could provide a citation metric, it would solve the problem of heterogeneity and only partial overlap of WOS or SCOPUS databases and would provide an authoritative source, unlikely ResearchGate or Google Scholar.
