Metadata: EBSCO Joins ORCID
EBSCO Information Services announces it is now a member of Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID), an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique and persistent researcher identifiers.
EBSCO Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Subscription Services, Robert Schoenvogel says ORCID will have far-reaching effects. “The work being done by ORCID will bring a broad array of people and organizations together and benefits nearly everyone involved in scholarly research. By integrating these unique and persistent identifiers for researchers into EBSCO products, especially the soon to be released Article Publication Charge (APC) management product, we are looking to help improve the experience for authors and publishers and enhance the scientific discovery process.”
EBSCO is also a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association.
