ORCID tipping point?

In ORCIDAuto-Update

We encourage all our members to strive for complete metadata and that should include ORCID iDs, whether their workflows are able to require them at submission or not. Since we launched the ORCID auto-update process a couple of months ago, over 10,000 authors have given Crossref permission to automatically update their ORCID records. The open letter—signed by eLife, PLOS, The Royal Society, AGU, EMBO, Hindawi, IEEE, and Science—also offers minimum implementation guidelines for the process: Require.

Crossref to Auto-Update ORCID Records

In the next few weeks, authors with an ORCID iD will be able to have Crossref automatically push information about their published work to their ORCID record. It’s something that ORCID users have been asking for and we’re pleased to be the first to develop the integration. 230 publishers already include ORCID iDs in their metadata deposits with us, and currently there are 248,000 DOIs that include ORCID iDs.
