      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?

      Andy Mabbett commented  · 

      Could we have an update, please?

      Andy Mabbett commented  · 

      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.

        Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

        We’re going to add this to our list of improvements to consider for the future and will update here accordingly.

          While the status of Kosovo is indeed disputed, it is recognised as an independent nation by the majority of other countries.

          People who identify as Kosovan should be able to express that.

            Thanks for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

            We will look into the feasibility of adding anchor links or something similar to each section of the ORCID record as a possible item for future development.

            Warm regards,
            ORCID Community Team

                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

                An earlier ticket [1] was, I believe, closed on a misunderstanding. We are not asking for any private data to be made pubic, but simply for search results pages to give an indication of which results include some public data; ideally with a summary, but otherwise with a tick or similar mark.

                      Just a note that my June 2016 comment, about Wikidata IDs, was originally posted as a separate suggestion, under the heading "Add Wikidata as an identifier type for works", and has been merged here.

                      Andy Mabbett commented  · 

                      I'm surprised by this request. I sat on the "ORCID works metadata working group" in 2013, and we made (at my suggestion) the recommendation [1]:

                      "Users should be able to add additional type-in values for this field when needed; ORCID should work with published ontology[2] to add popular typed-in values to the published ontology/ vocabulary"

                      The reasoning behind this approach is that it will capture the "missing" types that are most commonly used in the real word, rather than those which we think are important (or, with due respect to colleagues posting here, those favoured by people who happen to comment.

                      If the method for implementing the recommendation - which, I understood, was accepted - is not clear, I'll be happy to elaborate. Please contact me directly if so.

                      [1] http://www.slideshare.net/ORCIDSlides/orcid-works-metadata-working-group-recommendations - third bullet-point under "Work Types", page 2.

                      Andy Mabbett commented  · 

                      Works may be represented by items in Wikidata, both individually and in the "part of" sense. the relevant identifiers begin with "Q". For example:

                      Evolution in Mendelian Populations (paper = https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q5418627 = Q5418627)

                      Biology Letters (journal = https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q43341 = Q43341)

                      Please add an "identifier type" for Wikidata.

                      (Not to be confused with previous suggestions to add Wikidata identifiers for people)

                        Thank you. For clarity, in my original comment, "other DS" should of course read "other IDs".

                            Hi Andy,

                            This is an excellent suggestion and one we’ve talked about a few times at ORCID. I’ve marked it as under review as we’ll need to figure out the best way to include these other identifiers, before we can start work on it. But hopefully this is something we’ll be able to fit into our development priorities this year.

                            Allowing the entry of Wikidata IDs would also render my "Allow authors to enter URL of their Wikipedia biography" suggestion [1] redundant.

                              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,

                              If this can be done via the API, then presumably there's nothing stopping a third party from providing this as a service - perhaps a contender for the next hackathon?

                                Hi Andy,

                                Sorry about the delay in replying. Our team has been considering this, and we do like your idea, but we can’t find an easy way to implement it and don’t have the developer time for a new project to address this now. But as this problem becomes more frequent, and as we finish more features and have additional developer time, we’ll look at finding away to identify ISNIs entered as ORCID iDs.

                                Best,
