ORCID and Publishing

How can you reliably connect individuals with their contributions across multiple systems and platforms? How can you make the publishing process easier for your authors, editors, and reviewers? ORCID can help you address these and other challenges. Embedding ORCID iDs in your workflows can help publishers and associations streamline your processes, improve the management of CRM and other people databases, and improve discoverability.

Importantly, you can play your part in building a trusted research information infrastructure by asserting the connection between individuals and their professional contributions by:

  • Collecting validated ORCID iDs for individuals to ensure that they are correctly connected with their contributions, such as dissertations, publications, artworks, performances, or review activities
  • Displaying iDs in your data systems to signal to authors and contributors the value of using ORCID iDs
  • Connecting these ORCID-workID assertions to authors’ ORCID records, making it easy for researchers to share this trusted information with other systems and profiles
  • Synchronizing with your own systems to save your users time and improve information flow with other systems

Major publishers have committed to requiring ORCID iDs and invite others to do the same.

A successful integration takes more than just technical know-how. Communication with researchers and other stakeholders is key to gaining support.
