Agenda
• Background and motivation for establishing a national consortium
• Pilot project in 2013 the preparation for a national consortium,
considering aspects such as:
– Organisational – getting support from decision makers
– Financial – getting funding
– Technical – readiness of ORCID and local infrastructures
• The ORCID-implementation project in Denmark
– Establishing the national consortium
– Supporting the local implementation through communication – and
tool kit
– Monitoring the progress

Elements of the Danish infrastructure
• PURE
– All universities, university colleges have Pure as their CRIS and
institutional repository
– Majority of other public research institutions have Pure
• Danish National Research Database
– www.forskningsdatabasen.dk
• National Bibliometric Research Indicator
– The Danish version of the “Norwegian model”
– Called BFI and allocating basic research funds based on publications
(articles leve 1 and 2, monographs, book chapters and proceedings)
• Data transportation based on
– OAI-PMH
– And a national exchange format called DDF-MXD
• National Open Access Strategy
– 80 % in 2017 and 100 % in 2022
– An element of the strategy is a nationwide implementation of ORCID

The ORCID pilot project
• Funded by DEFF.dk (Denmark’s Electronic Research Library)
• Ended ultimo 2013
• Aim of the project was to:
– examine options for a national implementation of ORCID focusing on
both technical , organizational and economic aspects
– provide a basis for a concrete project application for a national ORCID
implementation project with at least three partner institutions
• Project results available from: http://www.deff.dk/aktuelt/artikel/defforciddk-pilotprojekt/

Interest of Universities
• A standard memorandum was made by the project
– This memorandum was presented at three university boards - around
medio 2013
– Including presentation in the boards by university library directors
– ALL three universities gave support to ORCID
• Opt-in strategy was preferred over an opt-out by all universities
1. because of the importance of giving researchers ownership of their
ORCID
2. Bottom-up seems less intrusive and builds trust into something that
is essential the researchers property.

Interest of ministry and research councils
• Meetings with the relevant people representing
– The Research Councils and the national Open Access policy
– The National Bibliometric Research Indicator
• Stakeholders invited to the national ORCID workshop
– Follow-up meetings where held
• Interest was sparked – and that the pilot project and possible
implementation project would be followed closely.
• However, no financial support could be found through these bodies.
• Later the ORCID was mentioned in the National Open Access strategy

Readiness of the university infrastructure
• Possible implementation scenarios was explored at the three pilot universities
– Aalborg University
– Roskilde University
– Technical University of Denmark
• Scenarios included:
– Pure centralized implementation
– Central person database (address book / LDAP) implementation
• Process analysis was conducted
– Which systems could benefit from ORCID
– Where would the best entry point for an ORCID registration or claim be?
– Ownership of systems at the university!? (Library drive projects)
• Exploration of any legal obstacles

Result : specification of ORCID in Pure
• Simple verification of an
existing ORCID and linking
that ORCID to a Pure profile
• Claiming ORCID through the
Pure user interface
– Requires registration
• The solution was funded by the
project and was released with
4.18
• Further integration must be
specified and introduced at a
later stage.

ORCID implementation in the university
person database
• Central person database at DTU (DTUBasen)
• All personal data is added into this system and imported and reused by
other administrative systems at DTU
• How could ORCID be utilized across systems!?
• This includes Pure (DTU Orbit)

Examination of the ORCID membership
model and economy
• The paradox of critical mass
• Not possible to get the majority of
institutions aboard the ORCID
consortium without external
support
• A reason for supporting a national
ORCID implementation – to give
ORCID traction
• This is traditional a DEFF priority!

Exploration of the interest to create a
national ORCID implementation project and
preparation for an application to create a national ORCID consortium
• A strong interest from stakeholders
• Incentives from financial benefits
– Paid membership by participation in the consortium for 1 ½ year
• 8 partners entered the project and consortium
– 6 out of 8 universities from the start
– A consortium of all Danish university colleges
– A consortium of research institutions under the Ministry of Culture
• The 2 missing universities the main problem was political e.g.
– Finding the right decision maker in the organisation.
– Interest was within the organisation but the stakeholders could not
get support to participate within the deadline of the application.

The National ORCID Consortium
• Technical University of Denmark –
is the Consortium Lead
– Recruiting consortium partners
– Checking legal aspects of the
contract with legal advisors
– Communication to consortium
partners
– Collecting signatures and send
contracts to ORCID.org
– Negotiating and paying the
consortium membership fee – as
part of the project
– Through out the process ORCID.org
has been very helpful and
responsive

8 institutions – 8 different approaches
• Although there are many similarities between the implementations at the
eight consortium partners, the different strategies and approaches are
striking, e.g.:
– 7 out of 8 have Pure as their main ORCID entry
– 1 out of 8 have their central person database as the main entry
– Some universities targets primarily post grad students through
obligatory research training
– Some try to gain high level support and provide deans of research as
“poster-boys”
– Some will make decrets dictating that research must have an ORCID
within a certain date
– Some will direct mail researchers, roadshows on faculty and
departments
– What will work better?

Monitoring the progress
• On-going monitoring
• Currently semiautomatic –
will be automated
• Only ORCIDs in Pure or
institutional systems count
• Reaching 80 % of FTE
researchers is the goal –
and funding will be based
on the ability to reach the
goals.

ORCID after April 2016 in Denmark
• We have qualified hope that more institutitions will be included into the
national consortium before the end of the current project, this includes:
– University of Copenhagen (the largest single university in Denmark)
• We also have a qualified hope that the national consortium will find
additional central funding to prolong the consortium beyond 2016.
• However if this should fail:
– The consortium may continue on its own terms – funded by the single
universities membership
– If continuation of the consortium the individual members may
transfer to a individual membership
– Finally the implementation of ORCID into Pure and central university
systems will still be valuable – if ORCID in general will gain critical
mass and up take by stakeholder from; authors, publishers, data
providers to funders
