Join the discussion
Please join the Jisc UK ORCID support team and ORCID for our next event.
Aims and objectives:
- Reflect on progress to date, both in Jisc activity and community implementation
- Help develop vision for the consortium
- Feed into new development requirements and shape activity for 2018/19
- Review next opportunities at a community and institutional level
- Fostering community of practice ethos
There will be updates from ORCID and the Jisc support service, opportunities to share and compare experiences with peers and space to discuss approaches and strategies to improve uptake and progress integration.
As well as benefiting delegates on the day, the dialogue and the information gathered will help Jisc to enhance support and good practice information.
Please note, the timetable below may be subject to change.
Thursday 28 June 2018
Refreshments will be available.
The welcome by Balviar Notay will give you an overview of the day.
Repository services senior manager, Jisc
ORCID member experience
We hear from member institutions about what they have done since joining the consortium.
How persistent identifiers like ORCID will ease the pain
ORCID hackday outputs
Parallel session 1
Parallel session 1 will last for 30 minutes. Please choose from the options below.
1. Collect and Connect
This session will give an overview and update on how Collect and Connect can help research organisations plan and build ORCID integrations that enable you to add and update trusted information for your faculty, staff, students, alumni, and members.
2. System breakout groups - EPrints, DSpace, PURE, Symplectic, Converis, Worktribe
Birds of a feather sessions which enable you to focus on specific systems being used to integrate with the ORCID API, compare notes with other organisations using the same systems, and discuss and identify common requirements that would allow you to do more with these systems.
3. Sharing ORCID IDs from institutional repositories
OAI-PMH uses Dublin Core to share information from institutional repositories to other systems. This session will follow up on investigations at the recent ORCID hackday in the UK which considered other options for including ORCID IDs in metadata in repository fields.
The opportunities presented by different initiatives such as schema.org and others will be explored and evaluated.
4. New to the consortium? What do I need to do?
If you have recently joined the consortium, or taken on new responsibilities for ORCID, this orientation session will give you an overview of ORCID integrations, community resources, and a chance to ask questions and think about your strategy.
Data2paper is a cloud-based application to automate the process of compiling and submitting a data paper to a journal without the researcher having to leave the research space or wrestle directly with the journal’s submission system.
This session will consider the use of ORCID IDs in the workflows around data2paper activities.
Parallel session 2
Parallel session 2 will last for 1 hour. Please choose from the options below.
6. Universal hub - building on the New Zealand hub
The New Zealand ORCID consortium has developed an ORCID hub - a web application that mediates between researchers, research organisations, and ORCID. It facilitates the creation of authoritative affiliations, and manages the process of obtaining permissions from individual researchers and storing access tokens for later use.
The session is aimed at potential UK users of the hub. This session will be preceded by a webinar offering a demo of the hub, which we request you attend or watch before the session. During the parallel session, participants will explore the functionality of the hub, feed back on how it matches their needs and start documenting what other requirements would be useful.
7. Managing 3rd party interactions
User control over their privacy settings and their ORCID record is a fundamental principle of ORCID.
When institutions are using third party systems to manage their user interactions (such as those with the ORCID registry) institutional ORCID users need to explicitly grant and revoke access to such third party suppliers in addition to their own institution. This session will consider ways in which users can grant/revoke access to their ORCID account to third parties while observing requirements such as those arising from GDPR, the concept of informed consent and user workflows and interactions. ORCID is exploring the technical and policy requirements for such models.
8. Who is using HR systems to store/exchange ORCID IDs?
This session builds on ongoing discussions within the UK ORCID member community, looking at alternative storage of ORCID IDs in institutional systems, with a focus on how HR systems fit in current or future workflows within institutions.
Advantages and disadvantages of different approaches will be considered, with an emphasis on learning from existing practice, both in the UK and elsewhere. Participants will help to identify any next steps required to link HR systems, current researcher workflows and other institutional systems.
9. Advocacy and communication strategies
This session will provide time to discuss and share approaches to effective engagement and communication around ORCID.
We would ask attendees to come ready to share their own activities and to discuss challenges they face and how the consortium can provide support. We will share resources produced by ORCID to support communication and engagement and give an overview of what’s required in the communication elements of the Collect and Connect programme.
10. Reporting and actionable intelligence
This is a session for those with responsibility for guiding strategic institutional directions and planning for uptake of ORCID.
Participants will look at questions they want to ask about the information held within the ORCID registry about their researchers and their institution, thinking practically about how they would access this information and how they would use it to strategic advantage in their role.

What do you want from your consortium?
We end the day with a wrap up and a look at next steps.
Who should attend
The event is open to Jisc UK ORCID consortium members and prospective members, but if there is high demand for spaces priority may be given to staff from consortium member organisations.
Places may also need to be limited to one place per institution, so please contact us if you want to send additional attendees and we will put you on the reserve list.
