Join the discussion
Please join the Jisc UK ORCID support team and ORCID for our annual consortium members’ day.
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 us enhance support and good practice guidance.
Aims and objectives
- Reflect on progress to date, both in Jisc activity and community implementation
- Feed into new development requirements and shape activity for 2019-20
- Review next opportunities at a community and institutional level – doing more with ORCID
- Discover, develop and share strategies for advocacy
- Foster a community of practice
Please note, the timetable below may be subject to change.
Wednesday 15 May 2019
Registration and refreshments
Welcome and event overview
We hear from member institutions about aspects of ORCID implementation at their institutions.
ORCID IDs at UKRI and funding systems
Speaker: Ashley Moore, data management and analysis lead, UKRI
An overview of the journey of using ORCID ID within UKRI infrastructure and a look at future opportunities.
Use of Create and Connect plugin in EPrints: University of Glasgow
Speaker: William Nixon, assistant director (digital strategy), University of Glasgow Library
The University of Glasgow has been a member of ORCID for several years and has worked with EPrints, our colleges and university services to support the take-up and use of ORCIDs. This brief talk will provide an overview of our work to date, lessons learned and next steps. The first phase of this work in our EPrints repository used the ORCID Support plugin to manually add ORCIDs to research outputs and then to surface these in records and citations.
Over the last year we have now enabled the ORCID Support Advance plugin which enables our staff to connect their ORCID to our repository – and to easily import, and export research outputs between ORCID and EPrints. We have also worked with our IT, university web and human resources team to support the re-use of ORCIDs added to EPrints in other university systems and to enable them in online staff profile pages.
Looking ahead our focus is on further engaging our academic colleagues around the advantage and use of ORCIDs using the Create and Connect functionality to more easily set-up and manage publications in ORCIDs – and EPrints.
ORCID, the Oxford approach
Speaker: Neil Jeffries, head of innovation, Bodleian Digital Library
Oxford integrated ORCID IDs with its core identity management systems. While this is an initially more complex approach than some others, there are downstream benefits that make the effort worthwhile.
Updates from the Jisc ORCID consortium support service
Updates from ORCID
An update from ORCID and a look at the priorities for 2019-20.
Outputs from hackdays
Our recent hackdays are intended for the consortium support team and members to work together to address specific technical improvements to ORCID implementation.
In this session we’ll feed back on the work being done and look forward.
Plenary session - doing more with ORCID
Across the consortium, experience with integrating the ORCID registry and iD and the associated infrastructure, policies and wider landscape vary from an extensive and mature body of knowledge to those just starting out.
Every institution will have plans on next steps for their ORCID implementation, whether to exploit connections to the API better, or integrate with institutional systems, develop better workflows to encourage adoption or finding novel approaches to funding ORCID and similar infrastructure costs.
In this session you can discuss the next steps your institution wants to take and get advice from peers, Jisc and ORCID. You can choose from one of the following topics to discuss in groups:
- Information exchange between institutional system and the API
- Harmonisation and exchange within institutional systems
- Exchange with (or update of) external systems
- Other things your researchers can do with ORCID: ResearchFish, Wikipedia
- ORCID and RDM
- ORCID and practice research
Breakout sessions currently include:
- New to the consortium? Find out what you need to know
- Exploring ORCID IDs in the HR space
- Thinking strategically about ORCID in your organisation - what do you need to do?
- ORCID in open research
- ORCID and annotations
- Birds of a feather - your chance to choose a topic on the day to discuss. (These could include breakouts by system users of Eprints, Pure, Symplectic etc)
Plenary session - advocacy strategies
How are institutions getting the message out to researchers about the benefits of ORCID? What works and what doesn’t? How do we advocate for the institution-wide benefits of ORCID to senior management?
We’ll discuss advocacy strategies in groups and share ideas about what the consortium support team can do to help members.
Summary and closing comments
We end the day with a wrap up of the day's activities and a look at next steps.
