ORCID has now begun work on embedding its system in the book publication process.
A non-profit organisation, ORCID provides a registry of unique identifiers for researchers, ensuring that they can be linked to and recognised for their work.
ORCID has now set up a working group that will focus on book publishing workflows. It is calling for inputs, questions and suggestions from members of the ORCID community including:
- what are the common elements of book workflows across publishers? A
- At what point in the process should validated ORCID iDs be introduced?
- What are the challenges for large publishers vs small ones?
