UK Researcher ID questionnaire

Posted in Discussions, identifiers, reports by Amanda Hill on 24 May, 2012

The Researcher Identifier Task and Finish Group convened by JISC is seeking responses to a questionnaire about the recommendations of the group. The text of the questionnaire is available in PDF format, if you want to read the whole thing before starting to answer the questions.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to consult within the UK research community about the feasibility and general acceptability of the task and finish group’s recommendations, of which those relating to ORCID and its implementation are central. The data gathered through this survey, along with that from interviews, will inform a report for JISC that will help prepare the ground for the UK-wide use of a common researcher ID which can be used to uniquely identify anyone involved in research.

Time is short – the deadline for completing the questionnaire is 4th June.
