Embedding ORCID across researcher career paths – about the project

Embedding ORCID across researcher career paths is Northumbria University’s contribution to the Jisc-ARMA ORCID pilot project. The aim of the pilot is streamline the ORCID implementation process at universities and to develop the best value approach for a potential UK wide adoption of ORCID in higher education.

In Northumbria’s project, two use cases will explore practical workflows to maximise the potential of ORCID to enrich the institutional and wider research environment. The first use case – ‘Moving ORCID upstream’, will add the identifier as an additional field in the postgraduate research student record for submission as part of the 2014 HESA return, thereby testing the notion that establishing registration closer to the source of data flow through the enterprise architecture most effectively streamlines multiple application.

The second use case – ‘Enhancing registration in campus based publishing partnerships’, will incorporate ORCID as part of a family of registration standards supported by the Scholarly Publications team in the University Library as part of a new digital publication service for Faculty run Open Access journal titles, thereby capturing external as well as internal authors.

Details of the other HEI-based projects participating in the pilot are available on the Jisc blog.
