ORCID Consortium Pricing


Membership of the South African ORCID consortium runs on an annual cycle from January-December. Where membership is taken up mid-cycle, a pro-rata amount is levied for the first cycle.

We invoice for ORCID membership a month or so after the anniversary date each year, and, in the interests of transparency, this has two separate components:

  • ORCID, Inc. offers Premium Consortium Membership at a reduced rate and TENET passes this cost on to South African consortium members directly in Rand.
  • We also levy a small consortium lead fee to cover the South African component. The exact amount of this varies depending on whether the consortium member takes up other services (we discount this for members who take up bundled NREN services).
