ORCID Releases Draft Recommendation: “Supporting ORCID in Repository Systems”; Open For Public Comment Through Mid-November

From an ORCiD Blog Post:

2018-10-22_13-02-54A few months ago, we announced the launch of the ORCID in repositories task force. This group, chaired by Michele Mennielli, International Membership and Partnership Manager at DuraSpace, was charged with reviewing and providing feedback on proposed recommendations for supporting ORCID in repository systems. In an unprecedented show of interest, we received over 40 applications from individuals interested in joining the task force.


Now, after several months of scrutinizing documents and meeting across far-flung timezones, the task force is releasing its Draft recommendation: Supporting ORCID in repository systems for public review and comment.

The recommendation is open for comment through 15 Nov, 2018. You may comment directly in the draft.  We invite you to share the document widely with your peers and colleagues who have an interest in the use of ORCID in repositories. You may send us your comments by email to community@orcid.org if you’d prefer to remain anonymous on the public document.


Our goal is to publish the final version of the document in December, 2018, after which we will launch work to incorporate the recommendations into our existing workflow documentation for repositories.
