ORCID and ISNI Issue Joint Statement on Interoperation

Publié le 25 avril 2013, par Thérèse Hameau

ORCID and ISNI are separate, independent organizations that assign identifiers to individuals and are using the same identifier format. While ISNI and ORCID have different missions and employ different processes for assigning identifiers and linking people with their works and their affiliated institutions, points of overlap between them justify investigating options for interoperability. ORCID and ISNI are agreed on the need to aim for interoperation through linking and of sharing public data between the two systems. In addition, ORCID and ISNI are committed to investigate the feasibility of a shared identifier scheme for a single number to represent an individual in both the ORCID and ISNI databases.

ISNI is an ISO certified global standard for identifying the millions of contributors to creative works and those active in their distribution, including writers, artists, creators, performers, researchers, producers, publishers, aggregators, and more. It is part of a family of international standard identifiers that includes identifiers of works, recordings, products and right holders in all repertoires, e.g. DOI, ISAN, ISBN, ISRC, ISSN, ISTC, and ISWC.

ORCID is an open, non-profit, international, and interdisciplinary community-based effort to provide a self-claim registry of unique researcher identifiers. To ensure the identifier links researchers with their works, ORCID works with the research community to embed these identifiers in workflows, such as manuscript submission, grant application, and dataset deposition. ORCID is unique because of its direct relationship with researchers and with organizations throughout the research community.
