Open Researcher and Contributor Id (ORCID)
Nice job catching an interesting idea from your call.
I’ve heard of ORCID and the question you raised interested me as well, so I looked on their web site a bit and found this on “how to tell if your researchers are using ORCID”
One of the tips is to look by DOI, which I know sometimes TreeSearch provides.
So, I searched for two terms:
I limited the search to those within station: PNW (PNW has 5,117 publications).
DOI – 80 items
Doi: – 59 items
So, one could hypothetically pull the DOI for various PNW pubs as a list of 59 – 80 items (assuming TreeSearch really found all records w/ DOI listed).
I get a bit less clear on how this works, but I think if the DOI is in the ORCID system, you should then be able to sue the API to query the ORCID database:
And you would ideally be able to find PNW researchers using ORCID.
I’m just writing this down to poke at more later because it interests me to know if any PNW researchers currently use ORCID.
