How Librarians Can Support the Adoption of ORCID iDs

December 6, 2016 Jen Cheng

You may have heard that we now require ORCID IDs as part of the manuscript submission process for a large number of our journals. But what can librarians do to help authors adopt ORCID as part of their submissions process?

Former librarian Nobuko Miyairi, Director of ORCID in Asia Pacific, addressed this in a recent webinar we hosted. She shared the following 3 tips on how to educate researchers about ORCID:

  1. Raise awareness –Differentiate ORCID from other profile systems.
  2. Help researchers register –Show them how to register quickly, and explain why they should.
  3. Provide support through localized resources

For more advice, watch the full video to hear from Nobuko below.
