Make your research impact blossom by creating, connecting, and leveraging your Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCiD)

ORCID Membership Use Cases for Campus Stakeholders

  • Adding acknowledgements of university service to faculty profiles 
  • Automatically populate IRs with those publications (and their metadata!) soon after they are published
  • Compile definitive list of publications and other research products produced by your campus researchers
  • Compiling dynamically-populated expert lists for each CSU campus and the whole CSU system
  • Creating automatic news feeds of the latest faculty publications
  • Creating efficient applications for campus and CSU grants, where forms automatically populate with information provided in the ORCID profile
  • Developing a searchable "Research Dashboard" describing grants and grant activities for each CSU campus and the whole CSU system (Fresca 2.0)
  • Expediting external grant applications and grant proposal submissions by automating the population of forms
  • Giving public credit to faculty for any certifications (e.g., IRB), trainings, or workshops they complete
  • Making journal article applications stronger by crowd-sourcing the curation of faculty profiles across campus units (Departments, Library, StratComm/PR, Alumni)
  • Providing external verification of publications and grant-activities to assist in RTP/WPAF evaluation
  • Set up an easy one-click way for researchers to create an ORCID iD and/or automatically assert the campus’s affiliation with the researcher
  • Share data with Offices of Research and administrators involved in RTP processes (and their systems)

Librarians & ORCID

There are lots of ways Librarians can promote ORCID and help your subject area faculty with their research on ORCID. You can:

The following ORCID webinar, Libraries, Researchers and ORCID: Guidance and Support, has lots more ideas!
