ORCID = Open Researcher and Contributor ID
ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors and national boundaries. It is a hub that connects researchers and research through the embedding of ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as research profile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications, and patent applications.
ORCID provides two core functions: (1) a registry to obtain a unique identifier and manage a record of activities, and (2) APIs that support system-to-system communication and authentication. ORCID makes its code available under an open source license, and will post an annual public data file under a CC0 waiver for free download.
The ORCID iD is a URI with a 16-digit number that is compatible with the ISO Standard (ISO 27729) and is randomly assigned. Individuals can obtain an ORCID id simply by completing a request on the orcid.org website.
Sponsors are being encouraged to replace agency-specific identifiers such as NIH e-Commons and NASA NSPIRES ids with the ORCID.
This has application for other Kuali applications as well including Kuali Student and Kuali Open Library Environment.
