ORCID takes responsibility for removing duplicate works and creates a useful merged "parent" record around a work (based on robust matching)

    Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

    We have marked this iDea as declined since we are already addressing duplication of works through our works grouping feature. Works are grouped together based on both their identifiers (such as DOIs, ISBNs, etc.) and their identifier's relationship being set to self. We believe works assertion by multiple sources is very positive since it adds validation to the data and help us building trust in the research infraestructure. For more information please see: https://support.orcid.org/hc/articles/360006894774 

    In addition, we will soon develop a way for users to easily merge works from within their ORCID record without having to use the "make a copy and edit" function as a part of our Q1 goals under 1. Share information (https://orcid.org/about/what-is-orcid/mission/2018-project-roadmap). We will soon add this development to our Trello board: https://trello.com/b/iuJwm8A6/orcid-current-development.

    Kind regards,
    ORCID Community Team
