Irish ORCID consortium members Science Foundation Ireland have signed the ORCID Funders Open Letter, committing to implement ORCID best practices in the organisations’ workflows.
Funding bodies are in a unique position to provide incentives to researchers to adopt ORCID iDs and to deliver system wide benefits. A handful of funding bodies around the world require the submission of ORCID iDs to apply for funding, and others support ORCID in their systems without such a mandate.
The signatories of the ORCID Funders Open Letter recognize that funding bodies collectively could do more to support the ORCID initiative. This open letter shows a public commitment to ORCID.
