ORCID integration at ScienceOpen - ScienceOpen Blog


In:  ORCID  

ORCID integration at ScienceOpen

ORCID integration has been at the heart
of our publishing system since our inception. We like to think that
this demonstrates that ScienceOpen was already thinking way ahead of the
curve for the future of publishing, and recognising the importance of
infrastructure and the value of unique identifiers. ORCID is now a major
part of the scholarly communications infrastructure, and becoming more
so with each passing day.
At ScienceOpen, registration with us
requires registration with ORCID. In fact, if you register with us, we
will automatically provide you the options for registering with ORCID.
Why is this important?
At ScienceOpen, we have always supported the use of ORCID within our services. Membership at ScienceOpen can be updated directly using your ORCID profile, providing seamless integration of the two.
To comment, review and rate articles,
we require an ORCID along with membership at ScienceOpen. If you have
more than 5 articles within your ORCID profile, you’ll gain Expert member status
with us, and free reign of services! We feel this is important to
maintain a high standard of quality for our peer review services. This
isn’t to say that those without ORCID wouldn’t be great referees, it’s
just that this is an explicit minimum standard.
Here’s a little table to help make this a
little easier to understand. We’re evolving all the time to adapt to
the needs of the research community, so please let us know if there’s
anything we can do to enhance our services!
Here’s a crash course in signing up for ORCID and integrating it into ScienceOpen:

ScienceOpen profile. If this doesn’t happen, try logging in and out, or
get in contact with us (
Step 5: Enjoy contributing towards making science more open! 🙂
