ORCID Requests Community Input Re: Guidelines For Display of ORCID iDs in Journal Articles
From the ORCID Blog:
Displaying ORCID iDs in metadata and in published articles is an important aspect of our new Collect & Connect program (see Step by Step: Collecting and Connecting ORCID iDs in the Publishing Process) and a key commitment of the open letter Requiring ORCID in Publication Workflows.
But the landscape has changed since we issued our original Suggested Practices for Collection and Display of ORCID iDs in Publishing Workflows in 2013. For example, publishers are now asking us: Should the display of ORCID iDs be the same in print and hypertext? What are the best practices for hyperlinking ORCID iDs – should it be the URI, the ORCID iD icon, or both? How can we best display ORCID iDs for mega-authored articles?
We recognize that journals have many considerations to take into account – style, standards, system limitations, and user expectations – so we very much want your input into these guidelines. Please send your use cases, suggestions, and questions and issues related to the display of ORCID iDs in articles (print and hypertext) to email@example.com by July 31, 2016. If anyone is interested in joining the working group, please also let us know by then.
