Over the past 10 years stakeholders across the scholarly communications community have invested significantly not only to increase the adoption of ORCID adoption by researchers, but also to build the the broader infrastructures that are needed both to support ORCID and to benefit from it. These parallel efforts have fostered the emergence of “research information citizenry”, which comprises, but is not limited to, researchers, publishers, funders, and institutions.
This paper takes a scientometric approach to investigating how effectively ORCID roles and responsibilities within this citizenry have been adopted. Focusing specifically on researchers, publishers, and funders, ORCID behaviours are measured against the approximated research world represented by the Dimensions dataset.
