ORCID iD can be handled in Klopotek Address Pool

Scholarly publisher Wiley announced it will become “the first major publisher to require ORCID iDs for submitting authors” in November 2016.

“ORCID provides a digital name – or iD – that uniquely and persistently identifies researchers and contributors. By connecting this iD to different research activities and affiliations across multiple research information platforms, ORCID helps enable recognition and reduce reporting burdens for researchers. It also enhances the discovery process and lays the foundation for trust in a digital research environment.” (Source:  http://orcid.org/content/requiring-orcid-publication-workflows-open-letter)

In their statement, Wiley explained that “more than 500 Wiley journals […] will require the submitting author to provide an ORCID identifier when submitting a manuscript.” “Being the first major publisher to require ORCID iDs is an example of our commitment to improving the management of research data by resolving name ambiguity among the research community,” said Judy Verses, Executive Vice President, Research at Wiley.

Klopotek’s Address Pool (as of version 10.8) is capable of handling the ORCID iD – just as well as the ISNI (International Standard Name Identifier) and other common identifiers. Customers who want to adopt these identifiers can easily do so without system updates or modifications.
