Author profiles tour
All you have to do to see your profiles is add your ORCID to the URL:
1. Some have had their day:
2. Some are abidingly cited:
3. Some are a slow burn:
As well as via direct links such as http://www.europepmc.org/authors/0000-0001-8314-8497 , there are various other ways access an author’s profile including:
- From a Europe PMC abstract page. Under the abstract, authors that have ORCIDs linked to the article are listed. Click on the author’s name to see the profile of that author.
- Search for an ORCID. If you know a person’s ORCID, just type it in the search box on any Europe PMC page. At the top of the results list there will be a box displaying the name of the person and a link to their profile.
- Advanced Search. If you know the person’s name, but not the ORCID, use the author search feature in the Advanced Search page. If there is an ORCID for that person in Europe PMC, it will be shown in the autosuggest list, along with an affiliation to help you disambiguate further:
The announcement last week that several leading publishers will require ORCIDs in publications from 2016 onwards will have a direct effect on adoption, as well as encouraging other publishers to take the same position in the longer term. Coupled with the recent launch of CrossRef’s ORCID auto-update feature, in which published articles are pushed to ORCID records on the authors’ behalf, ORCIDs are increasingly becoming embedded in publication workflows. Several funders, including four that use Europe PMC as a designated archive for the research they fund, now either require (Wellcome, NIHR, FWF) or request (ERC) ORCIDs in grant applications. Looking further to the future, the European Commission’s recently funded THOR project is exploring how public datasets can be linked to ORCIDs.
