2019 ORCID South Africa Workshop

With over 5 million registered users, ORCID now forms an integral part of the research ecosystem. Funding agencies are increasingly requesting ORCID iDs as part of their grant application process and it has become common practice for authors to provide their ORCID iD when they submit with major publishers. Over the last few years there has been a revolution in the way research is managed within institutions: in addition to depositing the final results in an institutional repository, research is now commonly tracked using a Current Research Information System (CRIS), and increasingly the accompanying research data needs to be archived in a Data Repository in accordance with a Data Management Plan (DMP). The adoption of ORCID within these systems helps tremendously in collating the information required for institutional research reports.

This year’s workshop will focus on South African ORCID strategy and ORCID adoption. It is aimed at research administrators, managers, librarians and systems developers from universities, research institutions, funders, academic publishers and related organisations.

The workshop itself is free, but you’ll need to arrange your own travel and accommodation. As places are limited, registration is required to secure your place. You can do this online at https://2019-orcid-south-africa-workshop.eventbrite.com/ before Friday 25 October 2019.
