In April of this year, Swansea University was lucky enough to be selected to participate in the Jisc-ARMA ORCID pilot project with the aim of investigating the implementation of ORCID IDs within our Research Information System (RIS).
Full details of the JISC project can be found at: http://orcidpilot.jiscinvolve.org/wp/ and http://www.jisc.ac.uk/fundingopportunities/funding_calls/2014/03/orcid.aspx.
We also aim to make ORCID available in the Welsh language to support researchers across Wales. Not only is bilingual provision a legal requirement in Wales, supported and monitored by the Welsh Commissioner, it is also an expectation among our Students and Staff.
