Can we data-mine abstract or full text information through the ORCID API?

No. ORCID is not a data repository for works, funding, or other data. Rather we are a source of data describing the connections between an individual and their research activities, outputs, affiliations, and pointers to these. We therefore only store minimal metadata, and we do not host abstracts, full-text, datasets, or other types of outputs.

If you would like to access abstracts or other information, we suggest first querying the researcher's ORCID record to obtain the identifiers related to their works, then query the source of the data.
