From Emilio Lorenzo, Arvo Consulting With the development of tight-integration functionalities between DSpace and orcid.org, repositories can obtain numerous advantages by improving data consistency in key information systems. These developments help repositories lower the barriers of ORCID integration and take-up.
A number of services, suitable for institutions with ORCID membership and hence with access to member API, have been developed by our company, Arvo Consultores. We would draw particular attention to user token collection services, biography synchronisation and upload and download of publications between repositories and orcid.org. Similarly, a new authentication method for Dspace has been developed. This is based on the use of ORCID authentication.
All the developments are available for ORCID’s new API V2, which will replace the 1.2 version soon.
The code for tight integration is operating in the e-IEO repository of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography, a public body devoted to multidisciplinary research into oceanographic and marine sciences. It will soon be deployed in EdocUR, the repository of the Universidad del Rosario, one of Colombia’s most prestigious universities for research.
