    It would be so much easer for potential users of the API if you could request "http://pub.orcid.org/0000-0002-8534-5985/orcid-works?json" in a browser and get a standard(!) json response (instead of specifying a Accept header and also a non standard one "orcid+json")

    Out of votes. I think this is a good idea.

    Great suggestion. This is on our list of things to do, it just doesn't have a high priority. I've listed the idea as under review as we will need to have staff look into it further before we make any changes.

    You need data stamps on these items presented on the parent page. Has this problem from 18 months ago been looked at?

    My friend Phil Archer, of the W3C, has written a paper [1] recommending some simple changes to ORCID's linked data, to make it more easily usable and to add semantic richness. I strongly commend his suggestions. [1] http://www.w3.org/2015/03/orcid-semantics

    A simple, public, read-only API (exactly like Jan suggested here) that requires no access token and simply returns the data already available on the public web page, but in JSON format, would make ORCID orders of magnitude more useful. In particular, it would make it possible to write very easy-to-use local tools, e.g. departmental CMS plugins that users can use to import their ORCID works list into their own home page. I don't want every user of such a plugin to have to set up an access token themselves first, and hard-wiring my own one in such an open-source tool also seems silly. Why even have an access token to access public data? What purpose does it serve?

    3.5 years on, the site still does not validate. Please expedite a fix. valid HTML helps accessibility.

    Hi Andy, Thanks for the reminder. We're going to flag this so our team can get an update this quarter, but we probably will not be able to get a response until after the release of the 2.0 API this month. The 2.0 API is a major update which will significantly change how integrators interact with the ORCID Registry. However subsequent versions are expected to come at a much faster rate as the changes will be more incremental. best, ORCID Community Team

    1) Why has "Implement W3C's 'Proposal for the Improvement of the Semantics of ORCIDs' been merged into this idea? The topics are not the same. 2) Please can we have the update to that idea, as promised in January 2017? 3) Please can we have an update on /this/ idea ("make the site validate correctly with W3C"), which was raised in December 2012?
