ORCID Initiative @ CMU-Scholarly Communications - Carnegie Mellon University

ORCID Initiative @ CMU

The University Libraries are leading an initiative to acquire ORCID identifiers for all CMU researchers, including faculty, post-docs, and graduate students.  Two pilot ORCID acquisition projects are planned.  The first will acquire ORCIDs for selected CMU researchers in Qatar.  The second, tentatively scheduled for fall semester 2014, will acquire ORCIDs for research faculty and staff in CIT.  ORCIDs will be acquired for other CMU researchers, including graduate students, at a later date, following completion of the pilots.

Long term plans include integrating ORCID IDs into other campus systems, including the Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance System (SPARCS) and Research Showcase @ CMU.

Why ORCID? So researchers can get recognized [pdf].  And so CMU can connect CMU researchers with their contributions [pdf].

If you have questions about the ORCID Initiative @ CMU, contact Denise Troll Covey, Scholarly Communications Librarian.
