Things you should consider before planning your integration

  1. What benefits will an ORCID integration provide for the organisation?
  2. What are the organisations priorities for integrating ORCID?
  3. Who are the potential stakeholders at the organisation that have a vested interest in ORCID?

The points below identify potential benefits your organisation might consider when implementing ORCID and may assist you with your planning activities.


Once your organisation has identified what type of integration activity they would like to undertake, contact the Consortium Lead so we can provide you with any relevant information that might assist with your planning.
