ORCID and #PeerReviewWeek18

Mon, 30 Jul 2018 - 17:21 UTC

Helping researchers get recognition for all their contributions is an important part of our strategic goal to empower researchers and enrich and advance the research ecosystem. This, of course, includes peer review, which is at the heart of so many research workflows, from grant application to conference proposals to publication. We are therefore delighted to announce that we will again be helping celebrate the important role of peer review in research by participating in this year’s Peer Review Week.

Our plans include:

We warmly invite the ORCID community to join in our celebrations -- and we also encourage you to plan your own!

The 2018 Peer Review Week Organizing Committee (of which ORCID is a member) has created some great Peer Review Week Event In A Box resources that you are welcome to download and use/adapt. We are especially keen to involve organizations from outside of publishing, so if you’re affiliated with a funder, a research institution, or any other type of research organization, please join in the fun! Be sure to share your plans so that we can include them on the PRW calendar.

And we hope that you will all join in the celebrations on social media -- follow @PeerRevWeek and the hashtags #PeerReviewWeek18 and #PeerRevDiversityInclusion.

ستة طرق لجعل أوركيد الخاص بك يعمل بالنسبة إليك!

Thu, 26 Jul 2018 - 19:07 UTC

تهانينا ، لقد قمت بالتسجيل في أوركيد! الخطوة التالية هي استخدام معرف أوركيد لبناء سجل أوركيد  الخاص بك. نحن نعرف أن آخر شيء تريده هو أن تقضي المزيد من الوقت في تحديث نظام آخر ، فلماذا لا تدع المنظمات والمنصات التي تتفاعل معها بالفعل تقوم بمعظم العمل بالنسبة لك؟ لن يؤدي ذلك إلى توفير الوقت فحسب ، بل يقلل أيضًا من مخاطر الأخطاء ، ويساعدك على ضمان الاتصالات الموثوقة بينك وبين مساهماتك البحثية وانتماءاتك. بعد كل شيء ، من هو أفضل من مؤسستك لتأكيد مكان عملك؟ أو المجلة الخاصة بك لتأكيد المقالات التي قمت بتأليفها؟

نوصي باتباع هذه الخطوات الستة السهلة لبناء سجل أوركيد موثوق - بينما بالكاد رفع الإصبع (الرقمي)!

١. التحقق من الإنتماء إلى مؤسستك. استخدم معرف أوركيد الخاص بك كلما طُلب منك ذلك في نظام تثق به - نظام إدارة معلومات البحث في مؤسستك ، أو تقديم المخطوطة أو نظام تقديم المنح ، على سبيل المثال. ستطلب منك عمليات دمج أوركيد تسجيل الدخول إلى حساب أوركيد الخاص بك للتحقق من  معرف أوركيد الخاص بك. في الوقت نفسه ، سيطلب منك العديد منهم بالتفويض لهم للوصول إلى سجلك. قل نعم! عندئذ سيكون بإمكانهم إضافة معلومات إلى سجل أوركيد الخاص بك والاحتفاظ بها محدثة نيابة عنك. وهذا يعني أنه على سبيل المثال ، يمكن لمؤسستك إضافة معلومات الارتباط الخاصة بك - بما في ذلك تاريخ البدء - وتحريرها إذا قمت بنقل الأقسام أو مغادرة المؤسسة. ستظهر مؤسستك كمصدر لتلك المعلومات. يمكنك اختيار إلغاء الوصول عبر إعدادات حساب أوركيد في أي وقت إذا كنت بحاجة إلى ذلك.

٢. تحديثات تلقائية للسجل الخاص بك أثناء نشره. تخويل كروس رف و / أو داتا سايت - مقدمي معرف الكائن الرقمي الرئيسيين للمنشورات البحثية - لتحديث السجل الخاص بك تلقائيا كلما قمت بنشر مقال مجلة أو مجموعة بيانات. سيطلب كروس رف الحصول على إذن منك بعد قبول الورقة - ابحث عن رسالة بريد إلكتروني منه ، وعندما يُطلب منك ذلك ، قم بتسجيل الدخول إلى حساب أوركيد الخاص بك وقم بتفويضه لتحديث السجل الخاص بك. يمكنك تنشيط ميزة التحديث التلقائي في داتا سايت بنفسك ، بصرف النظر عن عملية النشر. قم ببساطة بإعداد ملف تعريف داتا سايت وتمكين وظيفة التحديث التلقائي لأوركيد. بعد ذلك ، سيتم تحديث سجل أوركيد تلقائيًا في كل مرة يتم فيها نشر أحد أعمالك. سيظهر كروس رف أو داتا سايت كمصدر للمعلومات. في كثير من الأحيان يتم تحديث السجل الخاص بك قبل نشر المقال!

٣. تواصل مع أعمالك الحالية. استخدم أدوات البحث والربط لأوركيد. لقد قامت إحدى عشر من المنظمات الأعضاء لدينا حتى الآن بإنشاء هذه الأدوات ، والتي تمكنك من ربط أعمالك بسرعة وسهولة بالسجل الخاص بك. يمكنك استيراد معلومات من بعض أكبر قواعد البيانات ، مثل البيانات الوصفية و ريسرشرأي د ومعرف سكوبس من قواعد بيانات مثل بوب مد المركزية و قائمة المراجع العالمية م.ل.أ و / أو قواعد البيانات الخاصة بالبلد و / أو اللغة ، مثل أريتري و كوريا مد و ريداليك. حدد خيار البحث والربط ضمن إضافة أعمالك في قسم الأعمال في سجل أوركيد الخاص بك ، واختر قاعدة البيانات التي تريد الاتصال بها ، ومنح الإذن لها بالوصول إلى سجل أوركيد وتحديثه. ستعرض عليك قائمة بالمنشورات التي تتطابق مع المعلومات الموجودة في سجلك ، ويمكنك ببساطة المطالبة بتلك المطبوعات التي تمتلكها. سوف تظهر على الفور في سجل أوركيد الخاص بك ، مع قاعدة البيانات ذات الصلة تظهر كمصدر.

٤. تواصل مع المنح الحالية الخاصة بك. استخدم أداة البحث والبحث في  أوبر ريسيرش. يعمل هذا بنفس الطريقة التي تعمل بها أدوات البحث و الوصل للأعمال ، مما يتيح لك ربط منحك وجوائزك بسرعة وسهولة بالسجل الخاص بك. انقر على خيار البحث وصله في قسم تمويل السجل الخاص بك، حدد  أوبر ويزرد لأوركيد يأذن الوصول إلى السجل الخاص بك والمطالبة المنح الخاصة بك بالطريقة نفسها كما تفعل أعمالك. سيتم عرض المصدر على هيئة أوبر ريسيرش.

٥. قم بتوصيل ملفات التعريف الحالية بسجل أوركيد الخاص بك. هل لديك بالفعل ملف تعريف ريسرشرأي د أو معرف سكوبس؟ ماذا عن كودس أو لووب أو مندلاي أو بوبلون؟ لقد مكنتك هذه الأنظمة وغيرها من الباحثين من توصيل المعلومات منها بسجل أوركيد الخاص بك. كل منها يعمل بشكل مختلف بعض الشيء ، ولكن في جميع الحالات ، سيتاح لك خيار ربط  معرف أوركيد بملفك الشخصي ويطلب منك منح إذن لتحديث سجل أوركيد الخاص بك. لا حاجة لإعادة نفس البيانات! قد تجد أن الأعمال نفسها تتم إضافتها إلى سجل أوركيد الخاص بك عدة مرات ؛ إذا كان الأمر كذلك ، فسنعمل على تجميعها تلقائيًا عن طريق المعرف. إذا لم يكن هناك معرف ، فيمكنك اختيار تجميعها يدويًا إذا كنت ترغب في ذلك.

٦. قم بربط  معرف أوركيد الخاص بك مع مؤسستك لتسجيل الدخول بيانات الاعتماد. وفر وقتك وخفّض خطر فقدان الوصول إلى حسابك في أوركيد عن طريق ربط  معرف أوركيد الخاص بك بتسجيل الدخول المؤسسي الخاص بك. يمكنك أيضًا الاتصال بحسابك على فايسبوك و / أو ڤوڤل. وهذا يعني كلمة مرور واحدة يجب تذكرها وتضمن أيضًا أن لديك أكثر من طريقة للوصول إلى حساب أوركيد الخاص بك. اعرف المزيد هنا.

المزيد من الأنظمة تتصل بـأوركيد كل أسبوع. ابحث عن رمز  معرف أوركيد الأخضر في أنظمة البحث التي تستخدمها.

Technology + Engagement = Infrastructure Sustainability

Tue, 24 Jul 2018 - 13:47 UTC

As a community organization, the financial support of our members is critical for our sustainability. In addition, to deliver on our mission, we also need to ensure that ORCID iDs are fully embedded in the global research ecosystem: that iDs are widely adopted by researchers and they can use their iD in all of their research workflows. This requires organizations -- non-members and, in particular, members -- to implement ORCID technology according to best practices. It also requires all organizations to encourage the use of ORCID in their own communities through engagement and outreach.

In Spreading the ORCID Word: Helping You Help Us, we looked at how we are supporting your engagement and outreach efforts. Today, we are focusing on ORCID technology, a critical element if we are to  achieve our shared vision, of a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected with their contributions and affiliations across disciplines, borders, and time.   

We recognize that, even for large organizations, having access to the technology resources needed to integrate ORCID can be challenging. For smaller organizations it’s even more difficult.  This is a non-trivial issue, and one that we embrace on a daily basis, in every team, in every region. How, then, can we make progress? We are taking a three-pronged approach to supporting the ORCID community as you work to integrate iDs in your systems and workflows.

  1. Regional Approach. We are committed to supporting our community where you are. To this end, early on we created three regional teams to serve and build communities in the Americas; Europe, Middle East, and Africa; and Asia-Pacific. These teams provide in situ technology and community support, and are also responsible for regional engagement: establishing and supporting regional partnerships, member integrations, and user adoption.
  2. Consortia Approach. To scale globally, while also respecting local research practice and policies, we worke with our now 18 ORCID consortia to foster communities, common purpose, and collaborative action on digital transformation policies. Each consortium is responsible for supporting their own community, typically through one or more full- or part-time community managers, who we train and work closely with, to ensure best practices are applied in the consortia. In turn they serve as critical communication channels, enabling us to better understand -- and meet -- their community’s needs.
  3. Partner Approach. To make it easier for the community to adopt and implement ORCID, we are working increasingly closely with technology companies to embed ORCID in their products and services, which are used by many of our members. Our Collect and Connect program clearly indicates which of these products and services meet our best practices, which in turn reduces implementation barriers for our members. It also enables us to highlight exemplar partner integrations to demonstrate the impact of adoption.   
Members as Partners in the ORCID Mission

To achieve our mission, we need to partner with our members on the responsible -- and responsive - use of ORCID APIs and communication resources.  Integration goals for each community sector - publishers, employers, and funders -- are articulated in the ORCID Collect & Connect program, providing our regional teams and our members a solid foundation to build upon. But to be successful, we also need to take the time to understand our members’ individual goals, and to work with them on an implementation action plan they can follow to achieve their goals for integrating ORCID.

This includes:

  • Understanding. The member understands the technology requirements for effective use of ORCID, and has developed an implementation action plan
  • Implementation. The member has implemented ORCID in one or more research workflows that meet the Collect & Connect program guidelines
  • Benefit. The member is able to measure benefit of ORCID implementation
Which Community Actions are Mission Critical?

Researchers, research systems, and especially members, each have a role to play in helping ORCID -- and our community -- to be successful,:

  • Researchers need to register for, use, and share your iD when prompted or required to do so
  • Research systems should collect and display authenticated IDs (and other publicly available information from ORCID records)
  • Members must support and implement ORCID following Collect and Connect best practices, including updating ORCID records with iD-ID connections, and clearly identifying the source metadata: item source, assertion source, record source. Each sector has a specific role to play, with information they can specifically provide to support the open sharing of trusted research information: affiliation information (typically shared by employers), authored contributions (publishers), and award/grant information (funders).
Measuring Progress toward our Mission

How can we track progress toward achieving our mission?  As of today, we have over five million users, and more than 900 members with 580 integrations. To maximize the value of these integrations for members, users, and the wider community, we need to make sure that researchers can use their iD to make connections with their affiliations and contributions, and that members are enabling the collection of iDs and the creation and sharing of trusted connections.  These are some of the questions we ask to measure our progress:

  • Are our members integrating? Total number of members and members with at least one Collect and Connect badge
  • Are our members collecting iDs the right way? Number of member systems collecting authenticated iDs; total and by sector and region
  • Are our members creating and sharing connections? Number of members adding iD-ID connections to ORCID records, and total count of connections 
  • Are researchers using these integrations? As well as the overall statistics we share on our website weekly and in our annual report, we also monitor activity by integration (shared with individual members in regular reports) and by type of record item (affiliations, works, peer review, resources)

 

In addition to these quantitative measures, we also survey our members and users; and we listen, listen, listen to what you have to say - in webinars, regional meetings, other events, and in a variety of information channels.   Let us know how we are doing!

Spreading the ORCID Word: Helping You Help Us

Sat, 07 Jul 2018 - 11:18 UTC

This week we are delighted to welcome our five millionth ORCID registrant, a researcher in Hungary -- an important and exciting milestone to reach less than six years after our October 2012 launch! We appreciate your help in keeping these numbers growing, to benefit researchers, your organization, and the wider research community.

Milestones

Ensuring that researchers don’t just register for an iD, but that they also use and share it, is critical to achieving our vision. So we are equally excited to announce that we have also recently reached -- or are about to reach* -- a number of other key milestones:

  • 30 million works connected to ORCID record
  • 20 million works added to records by members
  • 2 million records with at least one external ID
  • 1.5 million records with at least one education item
  • 1 million:
    • works auto-updated in ORCID records by Crossref
    • records with at least one work
    • records with at least one employment item
    • person identifiers on ORCID records
    • keywords on ORCID records
  • 500k records with at least one funding item
  • 350k records with at least one other name
  • 125k researchers using social or institutional sign in
  • 500 systems where researchers can use their iD
  • 250 countries where researchers are using ORCID
Engaging researchers

Integrating ORCID into your organization’s research information system(s) is, of course, an essential part of this. But so, too, is encouraging your researchers to use their iD to connect information to their record, including giving permission to trusted organizations (ORCID members) to read and update their record. This ensures that researcher consent is respected and saves everyone time and hassle, helping to achieve the ORCID mantras of researcher control and enter once, reuse often.

While we interact directly with researchers ourselves, we also rely on our member organizations and other ORCID supporters to help. We know this is a big ask, and that’s why we’ve created all sorts of useful outreach resources.

We also love to share examples of successful ORCID outreach campaigns. Today, we are delighted to feature some great examples from our most recent communication webinars (you can access the full recordings here: Middle East/Africa/Europe/Americas and Asia-Pacific).

Example 1: Consortia resources

Several ORCID consortia have put together their own set of localized ORCID resources. Although these are primarily intended for consortium members, they are well worth a look as a great source of inspiration!

  • The Royal Society Te Aparangi, which leads the New Zealand consortium, hosts a sharespace of information, resources, example outreach plans and strategy, templates, and more. They’ve also made available sample email communications templates in the user guide for the ORCID NZ Hub, and a Welcome to the NZ ORCID Consortium booklet which gives an overview of resources and how to plan a communications strategy around ORCID.
  • The ORCID Germany consortium has set up a hub for their members, with German-language translations of ORCID outreach resources, a plan for setting up your institution’s ORCID information pages, and example user communications from the region.
  • The ORCID Australia consortium has a comprehensive set of resources, including these communication and outreach materials and examples.
Example 2: Custom videos

A number of ORCID members have created their own videos, to walk researchers through how and why to use their iD in the organization’s system(s). Three great examples:

Example 3: ORCID at Otago

Otago University is a great example of a university using our template communications campaign to develop their own outreach plan, including emails from the Deputy Vice Chancellor of  Research & Enterprise, as well as Subject Librarians; the creation of an ORCID at Otago webpage; videos; a competition; giveaways (pens and bookmarks); and pop-up information stalls and posters around the university

More great examples of community outreach campaigns are featured in Six Examples of Creative Promotion of ORCID by Libraries.

Share what you are doing

We greatly appreciate the individuals and organizations who help us to share our vision. If you’ve implemented a successful ORCID outreach campaign, please let us know! We’d love to feature it here on the ORCID blog, on social media, on our website, in presentations, or in a future communications webinar.

Thank you!
