US-based crowdsourcing life science firm Open Therapeutics has integrated ORCID
into its novel scientific crowdsourcing platform, Therapoid, the firm said.
Launched in 2012, ORCID
provides unique alphanumeric identifiers to researchers with the goal of providing authority control for authors in the scientific and academic communities.
Some of the world's largest publishers, funders, and institutions have adopted ORCID
and an increasing number of journals, including publications by PLOS, Nature, and Elsevier, are using ORCID
as a way to make it easier for authors to manage their information in manuscript submission systems.

system identifies scientific researchers and writers, MIRIAM system identifies biological models, ISNI system identifies contributors to creative works and those active in their distribution, and NBN system identifies library resources.
We encourage all researchers to sign up and use an ORCID
or ResearcherlD so that published articles and products can be attributed to the correct author(s).
Ideally, such a plan would minimize costs to the government while reducing the burden of compliance for publishers by using current and developing tools such as CrossRef, FundRef, and ORCID
group has proposed the creation of a system in which each individual researcher is assigned a specific alphanumeric identifier, which in turn is tethered to each of the researcher's scientific contributions.
