      We are glad to let you know that ORCID is adding support for OpenID and we would like your help testing it.

      OpenID Connect is a simple identity layer on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. It supplements existing OAuth authentication flows and provides information about users to clients in a well-described manner. ORCID provides the Basic OpenID Provider conformance profile: a new openid scope is available for our beta testers, which can be used as part of the existing authentication flow and will result in an OpenID token being returned with the access token. For further information, see: https://members.orcid.org/api/news/beta-testers-wanted-orcid-openid-connect

      We encourage that all interested parties join the beta test to provide feedback. OpenID support is available for both member and public API clients. If you’re interested in helping test OpenID support, please contact support@orcid.org

      Warm regards,
      ORCID Community Team

      not quite sure why this item is shown as Planned, but the converse (probably even more useful in the short-term at least) of being able to use FB/Google/Twitter to login to ORCID is currently showing as 'postponed' http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/5010131-openid-login Worth linking the two items somehow, and aiming to keep their status in sync. Hopefully OpenID integration will be done in both directions, right?

        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.

        Warm regards,
        ORCID Community Team

        I completely agree with this - conventionally researchers share their email address through their publications and through institutional addressbooks, so some level of default accessibility of email info (either public, or to members for lookup purposes) makes sense in terms of discoverability.
