On Thursday 22 June the Leiden University Libraries (UBL) are organising an informative session on the Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID).
Increasingly, scholars are asked to provide an ORCID id by journals and funders. But what exactly is an ORCID and why is it important that all Leiden researchers create one? This and other questions will be answered by our speakers. Maaike Duine and Matthew Buys, both from ORCID, will present on the importance and concrete applications of ORCID. Additionally, the UBL ORCID project team will explain the various ways researchers are supported in creating an ORCID and registering it in LUCRIS.
The meeting will be held on Thursday 22 June from 15.00h until 17.00h in the Vossius room at the University Library on the Witte Singel and will be open to all staff. After the meeting there will be time to talk over drinks.
You can register for the meeting via firstname.lastname@example.org (please mention ORCID bijeenkomst 22 juni in the subject) or by telephone via the University Library secretariat: 071-527 28 32.
You can find more information on ORCID at the UBL website. For current information, and discussions of the advantages and disadvantages, you can consult The Connected Leiden Researcher.
