Join the discussion
Jisc is providing technical and community support to ORCID UK consortium members. This is the first of a series of technical events to explore the requirements and opportunities for working with data accessed through the ORCID API.
The focus of this day will be to deepen understanding of the capabilities of the ORCID API and to think about the opportunities it presents for use cases involving interaction and other institutional systems.
The day will offer two intersecting strands, recognising that some community members may be more interested in one than the other:
- Strand one - Introduction to the ORCID API
Aimed at software developers and those potentially responsible for development projects
- Strand two - Definition of use cases
The use cases will be built of prior suggestions (such as from community events) or suggestions on the day; they will provide key inputs for the API hack day on the 18 October 2016 and to share with system vendors and user groups.
The draft programme is below.

Review of the day
Who should attend
This will be of interest both to developers (even if they are unfamiliar with ORCID) and also to anyone with an interest in understanding and influencing how ORCID data can be used.
For more information, contact Monica Duke, ORCID support coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org.
These events are open to Jisc ORCID consortium members and non-consortium members, but if there is high demand for spaces preference may be given to existing consortium members.
