IDIBAPS Toolbox Talk Series: Using ORCID to optimise your digital identity as a researcher

Esteve Auditorium, Esther Koplowitz Centre. C/Rosselló 149-153, 08036 Barcelona.

The session will be offered by Paloma Marín-Arraiza on Monday 13 November 2023 at 3 p.m. The speaker joined the ORCID team in March 2020, and she is currently its Engagement Manager for Global Consortia, a role in which she supports Consortia worldwide to make the most of their ORCID memberships and integrations.  

Before joining the ORCID team, she worked at the library of the Vienna University of Technology (Austria) and the Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology (Germany). She has taught several specialised courses on persistent identifiers, data interoperability, and research data management.  

She holds a licentiate degree in Physics and a master’s degree in Scientific Information and Communication, both from the University of Granada (Spain), as well as a PhD in Information Science from São Paulo State University (Brazil). Her research focus since completing her studies has been on enhanced publications, research data management, and persistent identifiers.  

The talk will provide an overview for participants of researchers’ persistent identifiers and ORCID and their corresponding role and functionality within the research process, understanding ORCID as a hub of scientific and research information that can be used throughout a research career.  

The use of ORCID in different workflows related to publication, research data management, and funding applications will be presented based on connections with other identifiers (including, among others, DOI, Handle, PubMed ID, Grant ID or DMP-ID). The talk will also include ways to optimise a researcher’s ORCID record through automatic connections with databases such as Crossref, PubMed Central, or Scopus, and its use in the IDIBAPS scientific information system.  

The activity is open to people from inside and outside the institution. It is a hybrid event: it will be possible to participate in person at the Esteve Auditorium of the Esther Koplowitz Centre, or via Zoom. To gain digital access it is necessary to register in advance to receive a personal connection link, this can be done up to the same day of the event.   

After the session and by prior request, members of the IDIBAPS community can participate in a meeting with the expert.   

The activity is organized with the support of the Fundación Española por la Cienica y la Tecnología (FECYT) and the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. It is also promoted by the institution’s Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R).
