More on ORCIDs and ISNIs

Posted in identifiers by Amanda Hill on 28 June, 2013

A press release from Ringgold this week and a blog post from ORCID tell us that ORCID will be using Ringgold’s institutional identifiers (soon to be converted into ISNI institutional identifiers) as a means of recording institutional affiliations of researchers identified in the ORCID system. This is a promising step towards interoperability of identifiers at the institutional level, at least (although departments and research groups are a whole other problem!).
