I have discussed the issue about a DOI lookup during the import from
ORCID, which I raised weeks ago, with ORCID further. They don't have a
general problem with that, but we have to be careful in the
implemenation of such a Crossref lookup. Here is their answer:
After some further discussion with the wider team, we have agreed that
it would be ok to implement the workflow you suggested: " the user has
in our repository connected his ORICD, granted our repository the rights
to read information, click on import from ORCID, chooses the items to
import and then click on the import button. This last click can either
1) only use the information which is directly saved at ORCID or 2) also
look up the DOI at Crossref and uses that information as well. "
Also, as Eprints mentioned, the iD field should be non editable. We want
to avoid iDs lookups or researchers adding iDs manually. Instead, the iD
should be obtained through authentication, via the API.
Would it be okay now to implement such a Crossref lookup during import
in the official ORCID Support Advance Plugin? I would rather avoid to
create a fork or anything else.
