MIT is integrating ORCIDs into MIT systems and working to associate these researcher identifiers with current scholars at MIT.
A phased approach:
- Summer: ORCID IDs will be created for researchers in a pilot DLC.
- Late Summer: ORCID IDs will be created for all faculty.
- Academic Year 2015-16: ORCID IDs will be created for all postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and other professional staff.
As the year progresses, the Office of the Provost will provide progress updates, and will begin to notify individual departments and faculty about their ORCID, and about opportunities to opt out.
