Title:
ORCID Implementation at Georgia Regents University
Authors:
Mears, Kim ( 0000-0001-6461-9054 )
Abstract:
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) offers a solution to name ambiguity within the publishing world, as well as a method for scholars to maintain a professional record of scholarly activities. The Georgia Regents University Libraries facilitated the adoption and integration of ORCID throughout the GRU campus community by actively engaging faculty and graduate students, as well as integrating ORCID into key university systems. The library collaborated with the University’s Department of Human Resources (HR) and BioMed Central to enhance the adoption and integration of ORCID identifiers in university systems, including the institution’s digital repository, Scholarly Commons, and the University’s Human Resources Management System (HRMS). The library has also begun to focus on educating graduate students on the benefits of ORCID as they begin to build their research portfolio. Librarians can assist their institution in improving research information infrastructure and ORCID is unique because it is the only researcher identifier integrated into grant and manuscript submission systems. This project benefits researchers and the University by increasing the adoption and use of ORCID identifiers and supporting efforts to reduce confusion in regards to common or international names. This is especially important when scholarly productivity has a direct impact on promotion and tenure. ORCID integration in Scholarly Commons was completed in September 2014. Successes and challenges along with the librarians’ educational efforts to introduce ORCID will be reviewed.
