ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and in its cooperation with other identifier systems. The ORCID registry went live in October 2012 after a couple of years of work and planning. Now that ORCID is launched what’s in store for the future? What impact will ORCID have and what services will be enabled in the future? This presentation will speculate on likely future services that will be enabled by ORCID.
