        Hello,

        Thanks for your iDea to improve the ORCID registry.

        The way the ORCID interface works is that publications which have the same identifier (e.g. PMID, DOI) with the same “self” relationship are grouped together into one item. This way a publication isn’t listed multiple times if you added it from multiple sources, such as importing a publication from Scopus and ResearcherID. It looks like the problem on your record is that some of the items from ResearcherID were provided without an identifier.

        If the identifiers are the same on two works which are not grouping, then the likely cause is due to the identifiers not sharing the same case (e.g. DOI: 10.0281/1234A.03 and DOI: 10.0281/1234a.03 ). Currently the ORCID Registry processes all identifiers as being case sensitive. This is a known issue — some identifiers are case sensitive, whilst others, such as DOIs, are not.

          Thanks for this suggestion. As you mentioned, a user can access their ORCID record via the ORCID API- instructions on how to do that are at https://members.orcid.org/api/tutorial/read-orcid-records

          We like your suggestion of offering a way to run this export in the user interface as well, but we will not be able to work on that right now. Our current priority is getting information into ORCID records and that’s where we’re focusing our development.

          Best,

          Our BibTeX parser exports the standard identifiers in BibTeX: ISBN, DOIs, ISSNs. It does not include other identifiers as they are not supported.

          ORCID is an open-source project that relies strongly on community support. We welcome your contributions to the improvement of our BibTeX parser: https://github.com/ORCID/bibtexParseJs

            Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry. This is a great idea, and it’s something that is possible to do using refresh tokens by revoking the original token. This will render the original token invalid and remove the active permissions in the user’s Trusted Organizations list.

            You can find our page on refresh tokens and example calls at our member support centre:
            https://members.orcid.org/api/oauth/refresh-tokens

            For the time being, we’re also going to mark this as under review, as having a specific call for token revocation may be something that we would like to implement in the near future also.

              Hello Anonymous:

              The affiliations feature would combine what is currently the "Education" and "Employment" on the ORCID record. See e.g. https://orcid.org/0000-0001-5109-3700

              Pleased to share that we aim to create a community working group (https://orcid.org/about/community ) to consider this and other issues related to the types of research outputs and engagement and how they should be recognized on the ORCID record. Watch our blog for the announcement!

              [edit] The working group has been put on hold for the time being. We are working on more internally to revamp affiliations, and hope to share more on this soon.

              Warm regards,

                Currently the ORCID Registry processes all identifiers as being case sensitive. This is a known issue — some identifiers are case sensitive, whilst others are not.

                Our team recognize this issue and will be addressing it by cataloguing our identifiers, their case sensitivity, and other validity issues, then putting these into effect and potentially sharing some of the data in the identifiers API (https://pub.orcid.org/v2.0/identifiers/ ).

                We currently have looking into the identifiers scheduled to commence April 2017 and shall update you when we are further into the project.

                  Thanks for your suggestion. We’ll put it under review to our team.

                  Please note that we generally do not recommend searching to find researchers’ ORCID iDs. Rather, we recommend asking them to provide their ORCID iD.

                  For systems, this would be by requesting that researchers sign into ORCID to provide their ORCID iD via authentication.

                  For individuals, this would be by asking the researcher directly for their ORCID iD.

                  Hello Jonathan,

                  Thanks for your comment. We're soon going to unveil an application that we've developed for just this use.

                  It's something like Doodle for ORCID iDs: You create a page for, say, your event and then link it to the group of contacts (conference registrants or attendees). They'll be able to sign into their ORCID accounts to authenticate their identities, and then their name will be added to the list along with their authenticated ORCID iDs. You'll then be able to download them all in text format.

                  We've been demoing it during our recent workshops, and it is how we collected the ORCID iDs of our iD display working group members: https://orcid.org/blog/2017/05/10/new-id-display-guidelines-journals-now-released

                  We hope to have the application released soon along with sample use cases. Keep an eye on our blog for more information!

                  Warm regards,

                    This is a great suggestion, but one that needs review before we can act on it. As ORCID is an international undertaking we have to comply with privacy regulations in numerous countries, some of which affect how we are able to share email address, even with trusted parties.

                      Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry. Since you’ve first submitted this suggestion, we’ve improved the appearance of the search bar, and are now working on the affiliations search. You can follow progress on the Current Development Trello at:
                      https://trello.com/c/7OywbDz8/3102

                      In the meantime, we would suggest that those looking into advanced search options also consider using the ORCID Public API. A tutorial is available at:
                      https://members.orcid.org/api/tutorial-searching-data-using-api

                      Thanks for your comment, M. Victoria Peláez Morales.

                      Please note that we do not recommend using the ORCID search to disambiguate researchers. The ORCID search is useful for finding some basic information -- for example, institutions can use the ORCID API search to find out how many researchers are *publicly* asserting an affiliation with their institution. https://members.orcid.org/api/resources/find-myresearchers

                      However we would not recommend that an institution consider those search results definitive. User control over their iD and information connected to it is a key principle of ORCID; that means that ORCID record holders choose what data they wish to make public on their ORCID record, or whether to add any data at all: https://orcid.org/blog/2016/05/05/user-control-over-who-sees-what

                      Our recommendation, rather, is that if you want to find a researcher's iD, then you should ask them to provide it. You can do this by asking them to sign into your system -- e.g. a manuscript submission system -- to confirm that they are in control of that ORCID iD. The system accepting that ORCID iD can then read other data on the ORCID record to add to their understanding of the user, but it is the authentication that is key: without asking the researcher to sign in, you do not know whether that iD indeed belongs to them, or whether it belongs to someone with the same name.

                      If you have any questions on this process, let us know at support@orcid.org

                      Warm regards,

                        Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

                        At present, the current stable version of the ORCID API, v1.2, does not make it possible to clearly state which items have been added or updated to the ORCID record via the ORCID API. (This is what such notifications are indicating.)

                        The simplest method to determine what was added or updated at present is by checking the creation date (via more details view). The modification date can also be viewed via the ORCID public API.

                        The API version currently in development, v2.0, supports the addition and updating of individual works items. It is possible that this could result in more informative notifications.

                        We would appreciate hearing further suggestions on how the addition/update notifications can improve. What information do you expect to see in them?

                        ORCID (APAC)AdminORCID (APAC) (ORCID Community Team, ORCID) commented  · 

                        Thanks for your comment, anonymous. Because of the limitations of the 1.2 version of the API, yes, if you want to see what has been newly added, then you will need to check the creation date of each item.

                        You can get the details for all of your works at once using the public API, e.g. https://pub.orcid.org/v2.0/xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx/works and then searching for the matching creation date. That us API only, however. In the user interface, you would need to click on each item's details view for more information.

                        Perhaps a feature that could help with those issues might be a view option to sort works by date created and date updated? If you think that'd be useful, why not submit it as an iDea? : )

                            Thanks again for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

                            We’re looking into this issue and would like to raise a question for your consideration. What do you think should be done in instances of open end dates? For example, an employment may be on an open-ended contract — should this be understood to be active and therefore floated to the top of the list?

                            Many thanks for your interest.

                            Warm regards,
                            ORCID Community Team

                            We have received this comment separately in response to this question:

                            after thinking about this issue, I would say yes: float entries without end date to the top. If several entries have no end date, they can still be sorted by their start date -- same for entries with identical end date, as suggested in the original post.

                              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

                                Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

                                We'd like to get your thoughts on how this could be implemented. The weightiness of one type over another may differ between user. How might the relative importance of work types be measured? Would users be able to go through the list of all work types and set their preferred display?

                                  Hello,

                                  Thank you for your suggestion for improving the ORCID Registry.

                                  Could you suggest some layouts that you would expect to see as an email signature? And by ‘ORCID logo’, might you refer to the ORCID iD icon? (Green circle with the white iD)

                                  Thank you.

                                  Warm regards,

                                  ORCID Community Engagement and Support

                                  Thanks Mark. We're going to add this to the list of suggested features for the Registry.

                                  In the meantime, you may be interested in the ORCID Widget, which is currently a hidden feature. When you're signed in, go to https://orcid.org/my-orcid?widget and click "Share your ORCID iD on other sites" to access the widget.

                                    Thanks for the suggested video!

                                    What are your thoughts for slightly amending this to be adding works using BibTeX?

                                    This could include sources of BibTeX in addition to Google Scholar. It could also mention common BibTeX issues, such as BibTeX exported from EndNote not being immediately able to be imported and requiring the use of a filter. (KAUST has kindly made a modified BibTeX filter for EndNote available: http://libguides.kaust.edu.sa/orcid )

                                      Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID registry.

                                      We have submitted this iDea — improving fuzzier searches — for consideration in our next round of projects and will update you when we have further information on it going forward.

                                      Thanks for your idea.

                                      To clarify, your suggestion is to offer fuzzier searches so that either "Mabett", "Mabbet", or "Mabet" may return "Mabbett" as a possible result -- is that correct?
