Pilot now underway

Today sees the start of our ORCID iD implementation pilot!

We are working with 4 departments (Centre for Health Economics, Environment, Health Sciences and Music). Each of the participants' Departmental Research Committee Chair has circulated an email to their research staff and postgraduate research students (PGRs) with some basic information about ORCID iDs. The email links out to our revised ORCID iD webpage from where researchers can register via PURE and research students via ORCID.

The email also asks researchers and PGRs to give us their views via a Google form survey on ORCID iDs, the ease of registration via PURE or ORCID, and the information that they were provided with.

We hope that the pilot (which runs until 14th November) will help us work towards wider implementation. It will be very interesting to see what the uptake of iDs is within the pilot departments and what feedback we will receive.
