Highlights of ORCID webinars September to November 2020
This blog posts provides highlights of four webinars presented by ORCID over the last few months, honing in on the topics of most interest to our members. With many demands on your time, we help you to get to the information you need more easily. We have provided timings for sections of these webinars so you can dip in and out to get to the information most relevant to you in small windows of time as your day allows, without needing to commit a whole hour. The infrastructure keeps improving in our wider ORCID community, making some time to stay up to date is recommended. Remember ORCID’s monthly newsletter for members also lists their webinars.
ORCID Product Interest Group
Date 14th September 2020
ORCID’s product interest group is a recent initiative from ORCID that allows the community to feed back to ORCID on their development plans and help ORCID’s members to understand ORCID’s goals with their development and their work plans. For example ORCID’s current work on developing and improving their user interface. Special interest groups run every 1-3 months. ORCID members are encouraged to contact ORCID if they would like to propose a topic to ORCID for further special interest groups.
The September product interest group webinar is recommended so that members can catch up on:
- Member and user experience of affiliations, including how ORCID is starting to use ROR
- New developments which will allow you to carry out CSV uploads of your researcher lists, and generate emails to researchers to remind them to create or connect an ORCID ID. [at 16-17 minutes]
- The member portal expected in Q1 2021 and how it will help you to learn more about how your researchers are using ORCID. Look out for much improved presentation on email domain stats for your institution, and information on how your ORCID integrations are being used [starting at 20 minutes, slide 19]
- ORCID’s commitment to improve accessibility and helping members meet their statutory requirements through an improved accessibility statement.
The next product interest group is coming soon on Monday 7th December at 3.00 pm. Register here. We highly recommend that our members catch up on the last product SIG or tune in for the next one.
