From an Introductory Blog Post:
Researchers demand credit for the work that they do. While there are well established practices and services in place to give credit for traditional publications, these are sorely lacking for the full range of research artefacts, including data and software.
THOR partners have been busy developing data claiming services.
The report [linked below] summarises progress on facilitating researchers and other contributors to associate research artefacts with their ORCID record, a process known as claiming. The dataset claiming process involves creating, maintaining, and sharing information about the relationship between researchers and datasets.
We describe our experience implementing claiming workflows at five organisations, identifying some of the shared challenges as well as the unique issues each organisation faced developing and successfully deploying the claiming process into a live operational production system.

This report summarises progress on enabling researchers and other contributors to associate datasets with their ORCID record. This is an important advance in enabling unambiguous attribution and credit for research. We describe requirements, results, and challenges informed by implementations in the life sciences, earth and environmental sciences, and high-energy physics.
