      Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

      We agree completely! We are revamping our new affiliations section to be four subsections:

      • Education and Qualifications
      • Employment
      • Invited positions and Distinctions
      • Membership and Service

      We’re in the final days of testing the feature before taking it live in the ORCID user interface and in the first release candidate of API 3.0. We’ll update this thread when it goes live.

      Learn more about the new affiliations: https://orcid.org/blog/2018/03/01/expanding-affiliations-orcid-update

      Track our progress on our Current Development Trello board: https://trello.com/b/iuJwm8A6/orcid-current-development

      Thanks for your comment. The works, funding, and peer review sections remain. This is updating the "Education" section to "Education and Qualifications" and added two new sections.

        @J: Any data that an individual self-asserts is noted on the ORCID record -- the source will be listed as "Source: ORCID iD holder's name" in the user interface, and it will be listed as "source-orcid-id" in the API. If it is asserted by the organization which, for example, employed the individual as a researcher, then the source will be listed as "Source: Organization Name" in the user interface, and the organization's API client be listed as "source-orcid-client" in the API. This allows the parties reading the ORCID record to know who is the source of the data and consider that data accordingly.

            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.

            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 to all who have supported and contributed to this iDea.

              Based on the community’s feedback, we have expanded the affiliations section of the ORCID record to four:
              1. Educations and Qualifications
              2. Employment
              3. Invited positions and Distinctions
              4. Membership and Service

              The new affiliations will soon be visible in the user interface, and organizations which are testing the first release candidate of API 3.0 will be able to try adding the new affiliation types. For more information, see: Expanding Affiliations in ORCID: An Update https://orcid.org/blog/2018/03/01/expanding-affiliations-orcid-update

              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,

                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

                We have also started working on adding an affiliation search field to the advanced search options: https://orcid.org/orcid-search/search You can find it on the advanced search page, however there is not yet a column which displays the affiliation listing in the search results.

                Finally, you can also use the basic search page (the default search option from the search bar) to create SOLR queries covering the same options as the public API. A Public API tutorial is available at:
                https://members.orcid.org/api/tutorial/search-orcid-registry

                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,
                ORCID Community Team

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

                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,
                The ORCID Community Team

                  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.

                    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?

                    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? : )

                        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

                          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?

                            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.

                              Warm regards,
                              ORCID Community Engagement and Support

                              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?
