ORCID is available to UK higher education institutions through a national consortium arrangement operated by Jisc.
ORCID is a hub that connects researchers and research through the embedding of ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as research profile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications, and patent applications. It is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors and national boundaries.
ORCID provides two core functions:
Credentials will be required to connect your systems to ORCID. Institutions must register a client application with the required information before production credentials are sent. Institutions will be asked to provide a demo for integrations that have been custom built before production credentials are issued.
Institutions using vendor systems can find guidance via the link.
Items the ORCID team look for in the demo are described in the member credential check list. ORCID will process the request for credentials immediately. This process is not fully automated. There may be a delay before ORCID respond to you with credentials or a demo request after you complete this form.
At any point during the following process, institutions building their own integration can start work on the ORCID sandbox and register for sandbox credentials.
