FAQs for NZ ORCID Consortium members

How do I find out ORCID record holders at my organisation?

You can search using ORCID's public APIs. This searches for information that people have made public in their ORCID records. Searching by email address is unreliable as few people make their email address public. It is better to search using an affiliation as people are more likely to have this on view publicly. ORCID have a tutorial on searching for this information


How do I read my member data report in the ORCID monthly newsletter?

ORCID's monthly newsletter, sent to your organisation's main ORCID contact contains data on the number of ORCID record holders at your organisation. ORCID's website has information on how to read the report

You need to register your integration with the ORCID sandbox and demonstrate it to ORCID before they will give you API credentials for the production ORCID site. You can have up to 5 sets of API credentials for your organisation. More information on getting started can be found on ORCID's website.
