Metadata Milestones: ORCID Reaches One Million Identifiers
Kudos and congrats to the ORCID team!
In a post thanking those involved in the project, ORCID’s (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) Executive Director Laurel Haak posted earlier announced today that the researcher name identification and linking project has now reached one million identifiers.
Additionally, Haak shares a brief preview of plans for ORCID during 2015. She writes:
In 2015, our focus will be on improving our APIs to streamline access to data. Applications that run queries, use notifications, and require reporting will all benefit. We are planning to expand the ORCID data model and user interface to support linkages with more research activities, such as peer review, patents, and software. And, we have initiated a regular webinar series, guest blog posts, regional workshops, and development of technical tools for integrators.
