[EP-tech] Re: ORCiD

I’d add it to the user records instead, so any creators_id value can be associated with the user and the user.orcid.
Obviously that depends on if you are modelling users, or just creators without user IDs.

How is anyone storing an ORCiD in EPrints?

Out-of-the-box, EPrints has creators with a name component, and an id component.
The default name of this field is 'Email':

I was thinking or using it to store the ORCiD instead of the email address, but didn't know if any 'best practice' was emerging yet?
