Library for Staff: ORCID @ Wintec

Curious about how Wintec Library can help you? Here's a quick guide to what we offer.

ORCID @ Wintec

Wintec recently became a founding member of the ORCID New Zealand consortium. 

ORCID® (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an open source, not for profit organisation and connects over 2.6 million researchers with funders, research organisations and publishers in 39 countries. By assigning researchers a unique digital identifier, it solves the problem of name ambiguity and provides reliable authentication. A growing international community of researchers, publishers, funders and academic societies are integrating ORCID into their workflows.

MBIE: ORCID Joint Statement of Principle

Tertiary Education Commission, Health Research Council, MBIE, Royal Society NZ and other signatories have issued a Joint Statement of Principle: Adoption and use of ORCID identifiers in New Zealand.

Benefits of ORCID to Researchers

  1. Enables the researcher to distinguish his/her research activities from others with similar names.
  2. Enables the researcher to easily and uniquely associate her/his identity to a wide range of research activities and outputs such as publications, datasets, media stories, citations, experiments, patents, online resources and notebooks.
  3. Reduces manual data entry through automatic harvesting of associated activities and outputs.
  4. Makes the research process and collaboration across borders, institutions and disciplines easier because the data associated with a researcher can ‘move’ across organisations and national boundaries.
  5. Facilitates researcher interaction with multiple organisations, publishers and funders through a common identifier.
  6. Provides an online record, improving discoverability of researchers and their associated research activities and outputs.
