The focus of this event is on cultivating ORCIDs both in the university and in the wider ecosystem, from business case to advocacy and from initial implementation to advanced opportunities.
Event sessions will include:
- Update for members on Jisc's activity and wider related developments
- Group discussion on current issues and next steps depending on your current position
- Group work on defining the priority developments and opportunities presented by different ORCID implementations, ie institutional repositories, current research information systems (CRIS) and publisher systems.
As well as benefiting delegates on the day, the dialogue and information gathered will help us to enhance support and good practice information throughout the ORCID implementation cycle. It will also guide us on the focus for future events, case studies, support materials and dialogue with third parties.
- Balviar Notay, open access service manager, Jisc
- Josh Brown, regional director, ORCID
- Paul Wellington-Smith, RCUK
This event is free to attend.

Welcome and event overview
Jisc project update
- Current focus
- Supporting information development
Breakouts - cultivating ORCIDs in the institution
Each delegate can choose two from the following sessions.
The aim is to share common issues, options and resolutions, which will inform how the Jisc team proceeds in terms of creating advice and guidance.
1. I’m a member, what next?
2. Initial advocacy - Researcher benefits and concerns, low hanging fruit, disciplinary differences
3. Making use of researcher ORCIDs – Strategic choices and tactical options
4. Promoting ORCID – As persistent ID, connecting hub, researcher record?
5. Managing data tagged with ORCIDs – How is ORCID being used and how should it be used, keeping and synchronising a canonical record
6. Extending your community – Hard to reach groups, new generations of post-grads, systems implications
Don’t do that, do this…
An exercise to capture the best and worst of experiences so far.
Breakouts - embedding ORCIDs in the ecosystem
Each delegate can choose two from the following sessions
The aim is to identify the benefits of particular implementations, to understand capabilities and development priorities relating to use of ORCIDs in key systems.
This will build on the priorities identified at the September 2015 members meeting.
1. CRIS systems
2. Institutional repositories
3. Publisher systems
4. Funder systems
5. Learning resources (VLEs, repositories, OERs)
6. Enterprise admin systems (HR, directory services, student registry)
Recommendations for actions
Feedback from the breakouts and responses to key issues.
System specific sessions
Round table sessions will be offered for target systems identified by delegates on registration.
For the widely used systems (such as EPrints, Pure) the sessions will start with an update on current capabilities and known plans, followed by discussion of current challenges and development requirements as identified by delegates.
Who should attend
This event will be of interest to ORCID consortium members, as well as those considering membership.
Whilst the event is open to Jisc ORCID consortium members and non-consortium members, if there is high demand for spaces, preference may be given to existing consortium members.
