Agenda: DCAT Discussion: Future of DSpace-ORCID integrations

There have been substantial developments since our last DCAT discussion on ORCID in December 2015.

One of the most significant developments is ORCID's transition to a new API, in which certain endpoints of the old API will be discontinued.

serverDuraSpace JIRA

Service provider Arvo consultores has already announced a completed integration based on the ORCID v2 API  The model is strongy based in the authority  model via external Authority database not via the SOLR core. Probably would be easy to translate, just ing out. A short video here:

Widget Connector

Just to remember, Purtuguese peolple (UMinho, etc has made public some code for syncronization  and ORCID libraries as well.

Which common use cases do we have for ORCID-DSpace integrations?

It would be very fruitful if we could align on a set of ORCID-DSpace use cases that resonate widely within our community.

The use case: "looking up an author in ORCID and matching him/her to a string based author name on a publication" is one that is not supported by API v2 anymore and is concerned an anti-pattern: because the researchers control what they expose on their ORCID profiles, it is very common that you can not determine if you have the right person, based on the information exposed in the profile.

An in-depth discussion on this, and ways forward, would be great.

Followup: face to face presentation and ORCID discussion in Geneva on June 20th

ORCID's Rob Peters and Josh Brown are kind enough to present at the DSpace user group day in Geneva on June 20th (right before the OAI conference) 

The ideas, actions or questions from today's DCAT call could be used as input for that meeting.

Open Repositories 2017 preparation

Who on the call attendees is coming to the Open Repositories conference

Shall we meet there, formally or informally? Thoughts on topics that would really benefit from face to face discussions?

Aug 22-23 North American DSpace user group meeting

Meeting notes

List of common DSpace-ORCID use cases

  1. I want to make the author metadata more trustworthy in a repository with a big backlog of already archived submissions
  2. I want to automatically get ORCIDs for authors, for new publications, for which the ORCID may already be included in the source of the metadata (publisher, crossref, ... ?)
    1. PROBLEM: if you are aiming for submission right after date of acceptance, in which external sources may not yet hold metadata of the publication!
  3. I want to comply to a requirement of an external harvester, that needs to harvest the ORCID together with the other metadata in a format that might be specific to the harvester
    1. Should we target a generic solution for OAI-PMH / REST? Apart from RIOXX, do we already have specification from other parties that want to harvest the ORCIDs in such a fashion?
