ORCID

ORCID is a digital identifier to distinguish individual researchers from other people and Orcid, Inc., a not-for-profit organization managing the Ids, provides the mechanism creating automated links with research outcomes and various relevant academic services. Based on the Orcid ID of the researcher, one can liaise with more than 300 publishers, funding agencies, and other academic services.

 

Need for researchers to acquire an ORCID ID

More than a solution to identical names and self-management of profiles by researchers, it offers a labor-saving advantage to researchers and the community.

・Making it easier to distinguish researchers with identical names, one’s own research outcomes, etc. can be disclosed accurately.

Once set on ORCID, it is not just labor-saving because one’s own research papers, affiliations, etc. on ORCID are automatically written and accumulated by stating the source from publishers, employers, etc. but also for guaranteeing the information’s credibility. Past papers can be imported from Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, and other databases. (In this case, the information source will be specified.)

Even though there is a change in employment, the same ORCID ID can be used. Furthermore, past e-mail address information which are currently not available is also saved in the account so by performing searches over ORCID, people can reach you from the contact information of published papers in the past. (In this case, e-mail addresses have to be configured as public information).

・ Journals which require the ORCID ID when submitting papers are increasing each year and there are more than 3,000 journals where the ORCID ID can be entered as an option.

 

Operation of ORCID at NINS

NINS acquired ORCID membership in May 2018. Moreover, those involved in research at NINS are all required to acquire an ORCID ID. By aligning the Research and Academic Staff List produced by NINS and the ORCID ID, we make it a goal for the research achievements of each researcher to be automatically acquired from ORCID and put on the List. Through ORCID, an infrastructure will be formed for the researcher to keep employment, invited positions and distinctions, and funding public to guarantee the information’s credibility through NINS.

Employment, invited positions and distinctions, and funding are listed.

The ORCID ID and works are acquired and used in the disclosure of information and institutional research.
