Neuroscience Bulletin Commits to ORCID Mandate

Aug 04, 2017     Email"> PrintText Size

The Neuroscience Bulletin signed the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) Open Letter committing to requiring ORCID iDs from authors on Jul. 27 in Shanghai. The international scholarly identifiers will be collected during submission using ScholarOne Manuscripts, enhancing the authors’ publishing experience. It is the first China-based journal to sign on to the commitment.

ORCID is a non-profit international organization that provides digital identifiers (iDs) that uniquely and persistently identify researchers and contributors. ORCID helps enable recognition and reduce reporting burdens for researchers by connecting their iDs to research activities and affiliations across multiple research information platforms. It also augments the discovery process and lays the foundation for trust in a digital research environment.

Neuroscience Bulletin authors will benefit from the interoperability between ORCID and other systems such as Crossref (www.crossref.org). In addition to displaying ORCID iDs in journal articles, Neuroscience Bulletin will include the ORCID iDs in data submitted to Crossref. Crossref will notify the authors that their article is published, and request permission to automatically add the article to their ORCID record.

In committing to collecting verified ORCID iDs, Neuroscience Bulletin joins an international community of publishers and funders to implement best practices in its publishing workflows. More than 3,000 journals worldwide collect ORCID iDs from authors, adding these iDs into published articles’ metadata, and auto-updating articles into authors’ ORCID records. Many leading funders including NIH, NASA, Welcome Trust, and RCUK also require applicants’ ORCID iDs as part of their grant evaluation process.

Neuroscience Bulletin, the official journal of the Chinese Neuroscience Society, is published bimonthly by Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and Springer. It aims to publish research advances in the field of neuroscience and promote exchange of scientific ideas within the community.
