Concurrent 5A: Connecting Research and Researchers: How ORCID is Facilitating the Interoperable Exchange of Information

The publishing community has been an early and enthusiastic adopter of the work of ORCID, an independent non-profit organization with a twofold mission: to provide an open registry of unique identifiers for researchers, and to work with the scholarly community to ensure that this persistent identifier is embedded in research workflows. ORCID serves as a hub, linking existing identifiers, such as CrossRef and DataCite DOIs, ISNI organizational identifiers, and author identifiers including ResearcherId and ScopusAuthor ID with the ultimate goal of connecting researchers with their contributions. This session will provide an opportunity to learn about the status of ORCID integration into manuscript submission and production systems, into reviewer workflows, into conference systems, and into repositories and evaluation systems. A panel of experts from diverse publishing will provide practical examples and best practices for how the scholarly communications community is using ORCID.
Moderator: Rebecca Bryant, ORCID
