Are you a Manager or Practitioner with responsibility for reviewing ORCID membership or for implementing ORCID in your institution?
For all-round advice on what to consider and what actions to take, the ORCID checklist for Higher Education Institutions is a good starting point. It provides a practical aid for managers and practitioners in the library or research office, based on lessons learned from the UK ORCID pilots commissioned by Jisc in collaboration with the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA).
