Join the discussion
Jisc provides technical and community support to ORCID UK consortium members. The ORCID API offers potential for improving processes within institutions and this hackday offers the opportunity to work with others in the community to identify and develop potential use cases.
The hackday will provide the time and space for developers to explore the opportunities offered by the ORCID API and identifiers. Work will focus on one or more use cases for ORCID data and the ORCID API within higher education institutions and throughout the day participants will identify opportunities, challenges and potential solutions through discussion, engaging with ORCID data and writing code.
The aim is not to develop production code - it will be quick and dirty and exploratory to identify issues and potential approaches.
Input into use cases
Some ideas for use cases to be explored on the day are being documented in a Google Doc for people to comment on and add to, prior to the event. Suggested areas so far include delegating ORCID tokens, CORE, IRUS and altmetrics.

Registration and refreshments
Introduction to the day and exploration of use cases
Working in groups on selected use cases with a break for lunch
Who should attend
Anyone managing or involved in delivering services which depend on ORCID IDs or would benefit from having clear identifiers for researchers.
In particular both developers and non-developers who:
- Work within repository or CRIS teams, identity teams, research output management teams
- Are interested in linking researchers with their contributions (publications, data, other)
- Are involved in services for HE which are based on researcher identifiers
The event is open to Jisc UK ORCID consortium members and non-consortium members, but if there is high demand for spaces priority may be given to existing consortium members.
