ORCID acts as a hub: the ORCID identifier connects researchers with their works, organizations, and their other person identifiers; ORCID Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) enable data exchange between research information systems. The ORCID community includes individual researchers, universities, national laboratories, commercial research organizations, research funders, publishers, national science agencies, data repositories, and international professional societies, all of whom have been critically affected by the lack of a central registry for researchers.
Benefits of ORCID-CA Membership
- Members receive access to the Premium Member API, which facilitates registration, deposit, editing, and updating of Record Data and/or read Limited Access Data, with permission from an individual ORCID iD holder ("opt-in").
- Premium Member API access facilitates integrating ORCID identifiers in key systems and workflows, such as research information systems, manuscript tracking systems, grant application processes, and membership databases. Integrating ORCID identifiers in local systems supports data exchange and enables automated updating of items linked researcher ORCID records.
