    Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

    This is not something that we are likely to implement and we are therefore marking it as declined. The visibility setting on email addresses is set to be private by default, and less than 2% of email addresses on the 2+ million ORCID records are visible to the public. This means that offering email addresses as a search option is unlikely to retrieve much information.

    In addition, we do not recommend that you submit your co-author's ORCID iDs manually. Rather, your manuscript submission system should request that co-authors authenticate their ORCID iDs with their system by signing into their ORCID account.

    Finally, note that searching by email is an option on the ORCID API. You can read more about this at:

    Warm regards,
