    The mask fopr entering works/publications allows to select "First" and "Additional" under "Credited", but not "Last". To be identified as a senior author is elementary in scientific publications and should be included here as well.

    This is a good idea. Some citation styles require identification of last author.

    Please add section for teaching documents. Will be very useful for teachers.

    I would like to provide links to a range of short videos about my research. These are highly structured videos but probably not works that should be mixed up with papers. It would be very useful to have the ability to add to the top bar: Works, Grants, Patents

    None of the existing sites allows the researcher to organize and present the courses she teaches - e.g. with a course site, all lecture slides, assignemnts, years it was held, etc.

    I have several policy publications, policy briefs and action-research publications and there is no category for those kinds of publications in the drop-down menu for uploading your work

    It's missing oral communications in the conference section!

    For publication type, you should really add "Review"

    I read this suggestion to mean "Review Article", rather than Peer Review?

    add Work Category: Research Project. There are many ways to contribute to a research project, besides being a principle investigator or author, such as project manager, data collector, data manager, etc. Currently these are hard to acknowledge under the current categories. And Other: other doesn't tell the picture of your role in the research. Adding a category such as this will be very useful going forward with new public access plans from the White OSTP, such as the new one from US DOT. Thanks for considering it.

    Records for journal articles only display the date, and don't display volume, issue, or page numbers. Examples are here: http://orcid.org/blog/2014/12/11/new-feature-friday-new-orcid-record-interface These are basic citation details which should be displayed in the public view. Without them, the record appears incomplete.

    Articulating 'software' and 'visualisations' (or 'visualizations') enables an unambiguous statement of type, rather than relying on the catch-all of 'other'. It broadens the type of contributor likely to be attracted to ORCiD as an identifier, and improves the breadth of research outputs identified

    Currently, "habilitation" can not be properly mapped to ORCID work types, yet it is a significant and distinct publication type.

    It would be ideal if ORCID captured all the aspect of a researcher's career, and that one is something that is evaluated by my institution

    Why not consider the openRIF VIVO-ISF standard for such things. It is being implemented in federal biosketch and reporting systems, would seem a good idea to promote interoperability. There are very many other contribution types and a lot going on in this space that ORCID could be taking advantage of.

    I was also surprised that Software is not listed among available choices

    ‘Conference Proceedings’ is not offered as a work type by ORCiD. 'Conference Proceedings' could be a ‘book’ but some times they are not.

    Indeed in INSPIRE we have the document type "Conference Proceeding", which is the document containing all the single conference contributions. E.g.: https://inspirehep.net/search?p=980%3Aproceedings

    Works may be represented by items in Wikidata, both individually and in the "part of" sense. the relevant identifiers begin with "Q". For example: Evolution in Mendelian Populations (paper = https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q5418627 = Q5418627) Biology Letters (journal = https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q43341 = Q43341) Please add an "identifier type" for Wikidata. (Not to be confused with previous suggestions to add Wikidata identifiers for people)

    Some of my publications are Letters to the Editor of an academic journal. I would like to see the category "Letter to the Editor" under "Work type."

    ORCID add research data products ("data sets") as a "Work Category." Right now, ORCID treats research data products as a lower level type, implying data products are not bona fide product of research activities. This elevation of data products to a Work Category is an appropriate change, given the importance of published and archived data in modern research. Such a change would promote the legitimacy of data products within ORCID

    Having an option for electronic publications is vital: Blog post, infographics, etc.

    Currently, in the web interface, works are presented one after the other with few option for sorting. Since we are soon going to integrate pushing Dataset to profiles of our author, it would be great if works could be initially displayed in an aggregated way, so that, for profiles having many datasets, these are not cluttering the list of publications. E.g. take: http://orcid.org/0000-0002-8635-8390 This profile has an entry per chemical element, and its visualization is almost impossible to complete.

    Hi, What I actually meant is just a suggestion for UI/UX: for profiles having a disproportionate number of item in a given work type, but with also items in other types, it could be good to initally display the different items by grouped by work types, and having the worktypes folded. E.g. see the mock up: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzqNlK0s7EOTbTlyRHVlOENjTFU Cheers, Samuele

    Since retiring I've been publishing my research work online on my own site as stand-alone web pages. So far I've been listing them as work category:Publication and work type:Report. A work type "online publication" or something similar would be more appropriate for this work.

    Blog posts in particular are, I submit, covered by work type:online resource. One thing unique about online resources, reports etc. is that they remain open for editing by the author. There is thus no single date for them. I've been dealing with this by leaving the date field empty, but a date option 'continuing' would be clearer. Work type "Letter to the Editor" could easily be misconstrued. Might I suggest "Academic Communication" or something similar? Is there a difference between "policy publications" etc and reports? I've been using the latter.

    Another of my work types that isn't covered well is brochures that have been refereed (in my case by the local health authority and municipal government) and published. For the moment I'm calling them 'reports', but they take at least 10x the effort per word of any real report I've written!

    What about professional awards? Honorary degrees can be put under education, but many awards confer a prestige well in excess of any associated funding, or involve no funding at all.

    Can I suggest a category "Creative Work"? At the moment, from what I can see the only possible category is Work Category: Other -> Artistic/Performance - for our academics working in creative writing, say, this is not very accurate or satisfying. Including this category in Work Category: Publication would also acknowledge creative works such as poems, short stories or novels as academic research output.
