ORCID & Vendor Systems

This page provides documentation created by IReL to assist Irish ORCID Consortium members in planning integrations with vendor systems. More documentation will be added as it becomes available. 

From ORCID’s ‘ORCID-enabled Systems‘ webpage:

“Many software vendors offer built-in support for ORCID in their current research information (CRIS), funding, repository, and publishing system products. These systems enable your organization to provide your own API credentials to collect authenticated ORCID iDs, and, in some cases, connect data from your system to ORCID records. Supported ORCID features and configuration steps vary by system […]

There are a number of third-party systems which support ORCID iDs in their workflows, but do not meet our requirements to provide support for an organization to supply and use their own API credentials, and/or do not collect validated ORCID iDs.”

This table presents an overview of the systems commonly in use by and of relevance to Irish ORCID consortium members, cross referenced against ORCID requirements and best practice for research institutions, funders and publishers. It focuses on member API requirements only.
