Training Offer: ORCID

We currently have 343 ORCIDs recorded in ORO and 11,261 papers in ORO have at least one ORCID recorded against a co-author.

We are running a workshop on Thursday 12th October at 10AM where you can learn about ORCIDs (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifiers), the non-proprietary identifier for researchers that has become the de-facto standard in the community.

Publishers and funders are increasingly requiring researchers to have ORCIDs. The session will explore why they are a good idea and the time saving benefits for researchers. Please bring along a mobile device as there will be time in the session to sign up for an ORCID, add research and scholarship outputs to your ORCID record and configure it to auto-populate with new publications.

Full details are available on the My Learning Centre or email library-research-support@open.ac.uk.

Update:  The Presentation Slides and Notes are now available.
