ORCID and DOI in NRS library?

Hi Brett,

I am a post-masters research participant in science communications with the PNW Research Station.

We recently had a PNW station scientist inquire about Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID).

I noticed that you have an ORCID at http://orcid.org/0000-0002-2465-7993.

I was wondering if you could share what motivated you to sign up for one?

Also, I have noticed on your NRS profile at < https://www.nrs.fs.fed.us/people/bbutler01> you have 42 documents using a Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

Here are some representative works of yours that caught my attention:





I’m trying to understand how researchers with PNW RS might obtain a DOI for their works (Like GTR, NRS, etc.) that are not published in journals.

I was hoping you might be able to inform me if you were personally obtaining the DOI for your works, or if someone (or something) else create the DOIs for you?

Any information you have would be helpful.

I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
