ORCID announces awardees for the 'Adoption & Integration Program'

ORCID recently announced nine project partners who will be participating in the ORCID Adoption and Integration (A&I) Program. This program provides external funding for North American universities and science and social science professional associations to integrate ORCID identifiers, supports the elicitation and documentation of use cases and open source code, and establishes a collaborative venue for disseminating best practices.

Selected partners

The selected awardees chosen on a competitive solicitation represents a breadth of use cases: institutional and data repositories, researcher profile systems, electronic theses and dissertations, professional society integrations, and a biological data center.The following nine projects were awarded grants:-

  • Boston University, to directly integrate ORCID into the upcoming release of Profiles, available to 30+ institutions using this researcher profile platform; expand adoption beyond faculty to postdocs, graduate students and undergrads; and establish a Wiki to support ORCID resource sharing.  
  • Cornell University, for integration into the VIVO open source researcher profiling system, first at Cornell and then in VIVO source code available to other VIVO users.
  • University of Notre Dame, for integration of ORCID identifiers into the UND Institutional Repository (IR) and creation of a Hydra ORCID Integrator Plug-in that can be re-used by any Project Hydra institution implementing the Hydra stack/Fedora Commons open source IR tool. 
  • Purdue University, for integration of ORCID identifiers into HUBzero open source platform for supporting research collaboration, including research data life cycle management, open educational resources, and data archival and citation support. The integration will be piloted on three different HUBzero instances: nanoHUB, the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR), and HABRI Central and integration source code will be available to the other 50+ institutions using HUBzero.
  • Reactome, for integration of ORCID identifiers into an international biological pathways knowledge base data center.
  • Society for Neuroscience, for integration of ORCID identifiers into its Association Management System (AMS) (Personify) to support management of information about its 42,000 members. 
  • Texas A&M University, for integrating ORCID identifiers into the open source Vireo electronic theses and dissertations (ETD) workflow, the university's digital repository, and the internally-used VIVO profile system.  TAMU will develop outreach materials for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers and will disseminate project outcomes to the ETD and repository communities. 
  • University of Colorado, for integration of ORCID identifiers into their Faculty information System (FIS) to support access and reporting at CUBoulder and CU-Colorado Springs; support the FIS publication data ingest process using Symplectic Elements and other sources; and share ORCID iDs through SPARQL endpoint with the American Psychological Association. 
  • University of Missouri, for integration of ORCID identifiers into the DSpace open source institutional repository application (in collaboration with @mire) and the UM MOSpace institutional repository, and for development and testing of graduate student outreach materials. 

The grantees will be demonstrating their prototype integrations in Spring 2014 ORCID Outreach Meeting to be held in Chicago on May 21-2.
