What's Coming Up!: Thank you for your feedback on our ORCID US Community Awards. As we continually recognize contributions to our community, starting May 16, 2022, the ORCID US Community Awards cycle will be updated to be closer with the calendar year. The new award cycle will start December 1st and end November 30th (previously, the award cycle was from May to May). This change will give us the opportunity to recognize our awardees and others during our Annual Member Meeting in December. For the 2023 awards, the eligibility period will start May 16, 2022 and end on November 30, 2023. The award recipients will be announced at our Annual Member Meeting in December 2023.

Please see notes at the bottom of this page for additional information.

*Nominate your peers for the “Most Helpful” individual award:
Has someone in the ORCID US Community been especially helpful to you? Maybe you watched a webinar presentation that stood out and gave you some good ideas. Maybe you read a post in the discussion forum that really helped you understand an ORCID process or scenario. If someone has been helpful to you in this way, please nominate that person for our ORCID US Community Awards “Most Helpful” individual category by completing this brief form by midnight on November 30th: https://goo.gl/forms/703xJJ3HMRBeLB2L2. The award recipient will be announced at the Annual Members Meeting in December, with all nominees receiving honorable mention.
All award winners must be ORCID US Community member institutions or employees of these institutions. Nominations for “Most Helpful” individual must come from employees of member institutions. Individuals may nominate someone at their own institution. An individual may not nominate another specific individual more than once per year. Individuals may not nominate themselves.

Note: We have retired some of the award categories since the start of these awards. These legacy awards are: 1) The “Institutional Involvement” award for the institution with the most individuals plugged in to the ORCID US Community discussion forum has been retired from the Awards program as of June 2021, due to the logistical inequities implied by the category (larger institutions have an advantage, since the larger the institution, the more people from that institution can participate in the discussion forum); and 2) The "Most Active" award for the most active individual in our ORCID US Community discussion forum has been retired from the Awards program as of May 2022, due to low activity in the discussion forum, and because this category had the least votes in the 2021 member survey.
