Growing Strong: ORCID US Community

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will primarily be an update on the status and current trends in the ORCID US Community (123+ institutions), formed in 2018 as a consortium for ORCID member research institutions in the US. Prior to 2018, ORCID was very low on the list of priorities at US research institutions. However, infused with new communication channels, resources like webinars and planning guides, and increased personalized outreach to member organizations, ORCID is steadily moving to the forefront of conversations around research information management and related endeavors. While there is still room for growth in terms of ORCID adoption, and DOI usage in some disciplines, best practices are emerging and pathways forward are becoming more clear for the US research institution community that will perhaps resonate with other PID communities and other areas of the globe.

How would you run the session to support the spirit of PIDapalooza as a laid-back, welcoming, energetic and exciting meeting, and ensure at least 10 minutes of your session are used to interact with the audience?

I am thinking of having a handout/game where participants are asked to put themselves in the position of a research administrator at an institution, then they would be asked to select strategies from a list for 3 components: internal stakeholder support, technical integration, and outreach/education - the point being that there are many different approaches to institutional ORCID adoption (also applicable to other PIDs) and they can mix and match different strategies - then I will cover the actual strategies that are emerging as best practices in the US in the talk/presentation, then discussion would ensue...
