An example of how one university is implementing ORCID can be seen by the University of Adelaide: https://www.adelaide.edu.au/orcid/. Nearly 3,141,593 academics have registered for ORCID IDs worldwide.
Does anyone have information on their institution’s investment in system changes to implement ORCID? If so, CAUDIT and the ORCID Consortium would love to hear from you. ORCID would be interested if anyone has a PhD or Masters student that would like to do some economic modelling on this.
