Strategic ORCID adoption at an institution requires the participation of individual researchers, so ongoing ORCID outreach and education is key. The ORCID US Community Outreach Planning Guide provides a step-by-step checklist of resources, examples, and strategies for promoting ORCID to researchers. Additionally, ORCID’s Outreach Resources provides suggestions and resources for communicating the benefits of ORCID to individuals.
For a list of case studies, articles about ORCID, reports that mention ORCID, etc., see our ORCID Bibliography.
Featured case study: Rebuilding ORCID Campus Outreach During a Pandemic by Christina Miskey, Scholarly Communication Librarian for Research Infrastructure at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (published in Library Marketing Journal, Vol. 5, Issue 1, Summer 2021).
