ORCID Registry Engineered by Semantico Goes Live

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) recently launched its Registry, where researchers can differentiate themselves by creating a unique personal identifier. The ORCID Registry has been engineered by Semantico. The technical solution uses an API-driven service-oriented architecture, and is being developed using an agile, iterative process.

Interoperability is critical, so the system has been designed to enhance the scientific discovery process and improve the efficiency of research funding and collaboration within the research community. Thomson Reuters provided ORCID with a perpetual license and royalty-free use of ResearcherID source code giving ORCID the critical technology to create its system.

The system as launched provides a switchboard for linking with other existing researcher identifier systems. Elsevier is providing a way for researchers to link their Scopus Author IDs to ORCID and synchronize their publication information between the two systems. Thomson Reuters’ ResearcherID will link to ORCID and allow researchers to synchronize their publication information. In addition to manuscript tracking systems and vendors including Nature Publishing Group, Hindawi Publishing Corportation, Copernicus, Aries, Scholar One, and eJournal Press, several research information system providers have integrated ORCID identifiers, including AVEDAS, figshare, KNODE, Faculty of 1000, and ImpactStory. Through its affiliate ORCID EU, ORCID is working with DataCite to link ORCID identifiers with research datasets.

“ORCID addresses a problem shared by individuals and organizations across the research community: reliably connecting research with researchers,” said Laure Haak, executive director of the nonprofit ORCID organization. “But ORCID is more than a Registry, it is a community effort to embed these identifiers in research workflows. ORCID iDs will be as important as the DOI; every researcher funder, publisher, and research organization, will engage with the system over time.”
