[EP-tech] Re: ORCiD



Yes please! Let’s work on integrating this. An identical project has been on our books for years, but we’ve never had the resourcing to attack it properly.

Hi Ian, everyone else..


We have our system with 2 extra datasets (Author and Author Instance)


The author contains everything about the person including 1 to many identifiers. (google scholarID, scopusAuthorID, ORCiD, etc etc etc....)

The author instance contains a link to a point in time, their affiliation with institutions/dept etc etc


The instance ID is then stored in the vanilla creator_id field.


This allows a single unique author to be displayed, along with all their cited versions of their name, so the citations render correctly, and still get assigned to the correct person.

(Example image also displays the statistics icon, which links to that authors stats page. – from https://eprints.usq.edu.au/view/uniqueauthor/ )



I have tried to get this pushed into the ePrints Core, but Seb hasn’t got back in touch about who to send it to.


I would like it incorporated into the base product, so we all have the same version, rather than a dozen or more splintered versions of code all trying to do the same thing.  This will make the support on this email list more fruitful, if we are all on the same page.


If anyone knows who is maintaining the base ePrints codebase these days, let me know and I will forward on the .zip file of all the code we have for inclusion into the base product.

Like lots of people have already said, I've just added an extra field to "creator" however Martin's point is well made: authors are not normalised across records - meaning the same [identical] name is listed for each record it appears in.


This is, perhaps, something to feed into the EPrints 3.4 or 4.0 roadmap?
