Thanks for the info –

Will pass this info along.

By the way, I have since learned that an ORCID was not a requirement of a publisher, but a requirement of the USGS –

One of our scientists was a co-author on a USGS paper.

Since we do not have ORCID for our FS researchers, the USGS dropped the requirement for non-USGS co-authors.

By the way, I do like the sound of “Dr. Jessel,” but I’m only a post-masters’ researcher right now, MSIS. 

Perhaps one day, though!

Hello Dr. Jessel:

Thank you for your interest in VIVO.

At this time, the USDA VIVO instance is not equipped for integration with ORCID identifiers. The implementation of new features is on hold until ARS can determine in what direction it wants the project to proceed.

We will keep your observation in mind when the project can more forward again.

Thanks again, Emily

Comments: Hi, I’m a researcher in science communications with USDA FS Research and Development, Pacific Northwest Research Station, Communications and Applications Group. We have a researcher who is being required to register for an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) as a condition of submitting a manuscript for publication to a scientific journal. I understand that VIVO can be integrated with ORCID. If it has not been done already, I am wondering if it is possible for you to integrate ORCID with USDA VIVO so that our researchers will have an ORCID that is linked to USDA Vivo. Instructions here: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/VTDA/Activating+the+ORCID+integration If it has already been done, can you advise on how our scientist might obtain her VIVO-linked ORCID? Thanks, Tanner

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. 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.
