Linking your BRIAN account with your ORCID account

OrcidA recent upgrade on BRIAN means that you are now able to link your ORCID ID with your BRIAN account. Click on this link to register for an ORCID account if you haven’t already got one.

Configuring ORCID is really easy. Go to your BRIAN homepage and scroll to the bottom of the page where you’ll find your ‘Data sources’. Simply click ‘configure’ next to the ORCID data source and you’ll be greeted with an authentication screen to either login or register with ORCID.

Once the accounts have been linked, BRIAN will periodically search ORCID for your “works” containing a DOI, PubMed ID or Scopus ID. Using these identifiers, BRIAN will then collect trusted metadata from other data sources including PubMed, Scopus and CrossRef and automatically associate this harvested data with a your BRIAN account.

About ORCID

ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and its cooperation with other identifier systems. Find out more on their website.

Orcid Identifiers now live in Je-S (RCUK)

orcid-logoThe Je-S System (RCUK account and project management system) announced the following changes in relation to the Orcid identifiers which are being implemented.

The Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) provides a free registry to obtain a unique digital identifier for researchers and scholars and allows them to manage a record of their research activities.

For researchers, an ORCID identifier supports automated linkages between them and their professional activities to ensure their work is properly recognised. ORCID records hold information such as name, email, organisation and research activities. Individuals control how their data is shared through managing data privacy settings within their ORCID account.

The ORCID identifiers will now be collected in the Je-S System to allow the Research Councils to link and share information across systems more easily

Within the Je-S ‘Account Creation’ and ‘Personal Details’ screen, there will now be the option to allow Je-S users to add their ORCID identifier (and create an identifier if they do not already have one). This will re-direct the user to the ORCID website where they will be required to give consent for Je-S to access their ORCID identifier, before returning them back to Je-S.

Users creating an Account for the first time will see;

jes orcid 1

 

 

Existing Je-S Users can add an ORCID identifier by updating their Personal Information;

orcid in Je-S_2

 

 

 

 

 

You will then be directed to the ORCID website.

 

Please contact the Je-S Helpdesk if you require any further information about the System release or if you experience any issues with the Je-S System.

Your ORCID ID now visible on the staff profile pages

Bernhard Angele

Following an enhancement to the staff profile pages, your ORCID ID is now displayed as a click-able link.

ORCID is an international, interdisciplinary, open, not-for-profit organisation. Its core function is to provide a registry of unique, persistent, and resolvable person identifiers together with web services to enable interoperability through integration of identifiers into research systems and workflows.

The core issues underlying the ORCID initiative are the effective and appropriate identification of individuals who participate in the research community, and linking individuals with their research outputs, activities and affiliations. Solving this problem makes individuals more discoverable and assists researchers in finding resources and collaborators to support their work. Linking the researcher identifier with research outputs, activities, affiliations and other existing person identifiers extends interoperability and supports reporting.

Registering for a free ORCID ID takes less than 1 minute. Please click on this link to register now – https://orcid.org/register

To display your ORCID ID on your staff profile page, you must first update your Core HR portal with your ORCID ID.

After you have logged on to the system, click on ‘My Profile’ in a blue box as shown below:

HR core

This will open up your profile page and you will see ‘Other information’ at the bottom of a side bar on the left, click on ‘+’ to expand the menu and you will see ‘Orcid’ as one of the tabs.

.HR core 2

To add your ORCID iD, please click on the ‘add item’ tab

ORCID ID will soon be made mandatory in our HESA return so if you have not yet obtained an ORCID ID, it is recommended that you do so as soon as possible. Please refer to this blog post for information on how to do so. In the coming mock REF internal outputs light-touch review, ORCID ID is also a mandatory field.

As soon as you have obtained your ORCID ID, this is how you can update your HRCore with the information.

Step 1:

Log in to the staff intranet

Step 2:

Locate ‘HR Portal’ in the scroll bar at the bottom. You will be directed to the CORE Portal. Log in with your usual BU credentials. Click on ‘My Personnel Services’ and you will be able to see the ORCID field under ‘Additional options’. Click on the option and enter your 16 digits ORCID ID and click save. Please note that the HR Portal is only accessible on-campus.

Your ORCID ID is now recorded on HR Core.

For queries about this, please direct them to pphatch@bournemouth.ac.uk.

ORCID – Have you got one?

For those of you who have heard about ORCID but are not entirely sure what it is, a short introduction below might help you to understand its efforts more.

ORCID is an international, interdisciplinary, open, not-for-profit organisation. Its core function is to provide a registry of unique, persistent, and resolvable person identifiers together with web services to enable interoperability through integration of identifiers into research systems and workflows.

The core issues underlying the ORCID initiative are the effective and appropriate identification of individuals who participate in the research community, and linking individuals with their research outputs, activities and affiliations. Solving this problem makes individuals more discoverable and assists researchers in finding resources and collaborators to support their work. Linking the researcher identifier with research outputs, activities, affiliations and other existing person identifiers extends interoperability and supports reporting.

Currently, Bournemouth University does not have an organisational membership to ORCID but the registry is free to use for individual researchers, which means that you can visit the ORCID website and obtain an ORCID identifier for free to manage your record of activities, and search for others in the registry. ORCID also offers several APIs that allow systems to connect to the ORCID registry and some API functions are freely available.

If you have signed up or intend to sign up to have an ORCID registry, we would like to hear from you please so if you could email Pengpeng Hatch with YOUR FULLNAME and YOUR ORCID ID that would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

 

UK specialists welcome launch of ORCID as tool to identify researchers

Jisc joins organisations from across the UK higher education network to welcome the launch of the Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID).

There are more academic articles being published than ever before and more authors working together. In order to be able to identify an author correctly a unique identifier is needed that can then link to each author’s publications. ORCID provides this link and if widely used would:

• Ensure researchers get credit for their own work • Ensure researchers and learners looking for information will be able to find academic papers more accurately • Enable better management of researcher publication records, making it easier for them to create CVs, reduce form filling and improve reporting to funders • Create a means of linking information between institutions and systems internationally • Enable researchers to keep track of their own work with funders, publishers and institutions around the world.

It also provides researchers with their own ORCID. Researchers are able to control how much information it holds about them and who that is shared with. The adoption of ORCID is a solution to the current challenges of being able to search for work accurately. By researchers volunteering to adopt its usage it could improve discoverability and accurate referencing.

Neil Jacobs, programme director, Jisc comments: “We welcome the consensus that has been achieved on this issue, which should pave the way for a better research system, less work for researchers re-keying details, and more efficient operations across the sector. We recognise that this is only the start and that work needs to be done to implement ORCID in the UK. However, we have a solid beginning and we look forward to working with our partners across the sector to build on it.”

Alongside Jisc, the organisations below are encouraging the adoption of ORCID:

• The Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA) • The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) • The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) • Research Councils UK (RCUK) • The Universities and Colleges Information Systems Association (UCISA) • The Wellcome Trust.
