The work of the New Zealand ORCID Consortium was recently recognised at the first international ORCID consortium workshop.
Jason Gush accepted the award on behalf of Royal Society Te Apārangi, the lead agency for the New Zealand consortium. The award was presented for our success at inclusiveness, as our consortium contains organisations of all sizes and technical capabilities. Five awards were presented at the ORCID Consortium workshop, held in Lisbon on 17-18 January.
Our consortium receives generous support from MBIE, including finance to develop a simple web application, the New Zealand ORCID Hub. This application gives all organisations, of all sizes, the ability to read from and write to ORCID records, with the record holder’s permission. So far, the Hub can write education, employment and funding information to ORCID records and will be further developed to allow the writing of research outputs, or ‘works’ as they are known by ORCID.
