ORCID, a non-profit organisation that provides an open registry of unique identifiers for researchers, has entered into an agreement with Ringgold to provide its database of institutional entities and associated unique institutional identifiers, in the form of Ringgold IDs and the forthcoming ISNI numbers. These unique organisational identifiers will be used to support the accurate and persistent identification of researcher institutional affiliations in the ORCID Registry.
ORCID provides researchers with the ability to obtain a unique ID which distinguishes a researcher from others and allows for accurate attribution of research output. The new agreement with Ringgold has numerous benefits to the research community. Researchers can accurately state their institutional affiliations and keep them up to date. Research organisations can reduce the time-consuming process of maintaining up-to-date affiliation records and streamline access to institutional resources for their staff. Funders will be able to more easily track where the research they support is carried out. Publishers will now be able to streamline the manuscript submission process and provide vital information for the automation of Article Publication Charges in open access journals.
ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven organisation that provides a registry of unique and persistent researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and affiliations to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to connect disciplines, research sectors, and nations and its cooperation with other identifier systems.
