You can now read the final public report of the ORCID Scoping Project, a University of Oxford internal project funded by the Research Information Management and Technology Sub-Committee and led by the Bodleian Libraries. The report aims to summarise the current state of the ORCID environment in the UK and more widely, with reference to research carried out over the past four months, with a view to providing a series of recommendations for further investment in ORCID-related activities at Oxford.
However, through working with other institutions and other ORCID stakeholders during the project it became apparent that the findings and conclusions in the report would be valuable to the wider ORCID community and it was therefore decided to release a version more widely.
With thanks to colleagues in collaborating institutions, Jisc, ORCID and many other bodies (listed in the appendices), the report is attached.
