Milestones: ORCID Reaches 10 Million Registered IDs
From an ORCID Blog Post:
At the end of 2012, just three months after we launched the ORCID registry, we were thrilled to be able to share that nearly 50,000 researchers had already registered for an iD. Ten months after that, we celebrated the ORCID record growing to nearly 250,000 (with 80 Members!) All told, it took us just a little over two years to grow to 1,000,000 iDs, and nine months after that, in 2015, we hit 1.5 million iDs.
Since 2015 we’ve been steadily growing and exceeding even our own high expectations:
- In 2015, the record grew by 788,650 records,
- In 2016, by 1,068,295,
- In 2017, 1,388,796,
- In 2018, it grew by 1,585,851,
- In 2019, by 2,006,672, and
- In 2020 (so far), it’s grown by 2,293,631!
And just last week ORCID hit another major milestone: 10 million registered ORCID iDs!
