Not planned

    Thanks for submitting your idea to improve the ORCID Registry. We agree that integration with other systems, such as ResearchGate, is important, and would like your help making your idea a reality.

    Integrating with another system requires a partnership; it is not something ORCID can do on its own. We need two things to get started: a short specification describing the system and how ORCID should interact with it, and also contact information for who within that organization to partner with to carry out the integration.

    Could you provide us with this information or help direct us to who to talk with?

    Cheers,

    -Laure

    I am not sure who to talk to at researchgate, but everything about them including contact info is here: https://www.researchgate.net/aboutus.AboutUs.html

    Or ORCID may just develop something similar to the RG score (in which a forum for academic questions may be needed).

    Agreed... combining with RG would be very desirable. Also, it could be interesting to integrate with www.Sparklix.com - such that e-lab book contributions can be tracked by ORCID - this allows tracking of data provenance.

    As a matter of fact, I have 200 registered publications of differen tnature regeisterd with ResearchGate. The first automatic search with ORCID gave 26 papers. That's quite a difference. Acording to me it is a must that organisations like ORCID and ResearchGate (among others) start joint ventures in information exchange. I can assure you that I will not be perpared to manually input the remaining publications that ORCID did not find AGAIN. That's a lot of work, and I have other business to attend than perform manual inputs for every organisation interested in the biographies and publication lsist of research scientists. Secondly, I can look for a contactperson at ResearchGate, but an ORCID director will have to negociate on the topic of information exchange. I don't see this as my task and it would not have much impact either. Cheers, Frank PS.: NeverthelessI will try to find the best contact person within ResearchGate for ORCID, to talk about data exchnage or even better data sharing, which might run more smoothly..

    Any news about the RG and ORCID integration/collaboration? Our researchers are asking for the same integration with many of the same arguments as presented below.

    I asked ResearchGate about this. They said "Unfortunately its not currently possible to link your profile with ORCID" The email address from which this was sent looks like a live (i.e., not send-only) address: ResearchGate Community Support <5xork@support.researchgate.net> . Perhaps you can use that address to find a useful contact.

    they will never agree, "conflict of interest" I suggest to use a robot (like the one used by search ingines) to find all researches belonging for each orcid users, and show those automatically to each user, so the user will accept or decline with just one click for each publication. the robot work is not only oriented to researchgate but also to everywhere.

    I agree with Mr. Frank Veroustraete and the idea that ORCID and ResearchGate must integrate. Out of all of the research profiles, researchgate is the most used and popular. ORCID must come up with a strategy!

  • What I really need is a feature that would allow ResearchGate to find my publications by using my ORCID, ResearcherID, or GoogleScholar profile. My last name is Smith and so it is an impossibly large task to winnow out all the publications that are not mine when asking ResearchGate to find by name.

    Research Gate allows researchers to connect, collaborate and share in a way that ORCID does not yet do. So, I would agree that if one product doesn't replace the other, then they should be able to somehow be linked. It just makes sense!

    You can add your ORCID number to your profile, which helps them to assign your research to your profile more easily:https://explore.researchgate.net/display/support/Profile+basics

    The existence of parallel services like Orcid, Research Gate and Academia turn what could be an advantage in extra time spent in filling forms...it does not seem to be for the advancement of Science.
