Crimson Interactive attends the ORCID Biannual Outreach Meeting held in Tokyo, Japan (Nov 4)
ORCID organized its biannual outreach meeting at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan, on Nov 4th. In line with its motto of Connecting Research and Researchers, the meeting’s objective was to increase awareness of ORCID among research organizations and universities, publishers, and professional societies in Asia.
ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.
The opening session was addressed by Jun Adachi, Deputy Director-General, National Institute of Informatics (NII). Various presentations focusing on disseminating knowledge about ORCID covered topics such as Why ORCID? Perspectives from the Research Community and Effective Practices for Integrating ORCID Identifiers. Choon Shil Lee, Korean Association of Medical Journal Editors and Professor at Sookmyung Women's University; Mitsuru Mizuno, Director, Department of Database for Information and Knowledge Infrastructure, Japan Science and Technology Agency; and Yasuhisa Kondo, Vice Chair, Japan Geosciences Union Information System Committee were among the diverse set of speakers. Attendees included members from publishing houses like Wiley, Springer, and Nature; Thomson Reuters; universities; librarians; and other associations.
Christopher C, Head of Information Services, Hong Kong Baptist University Library and Hao-Ren K, University Librarian, National Taiwan Normal University shared their experiences and the challenges in introducing ORCID at their universities. Their talks on the organization-wide implementation and benefits of ORCID made the audience catch on to the new global academic movement coursing through even Asia.
We felt this was a great step for sharing how researchers and associations in Asia are adopting ORCID, and having direct conversations with academic professionals in Asia about ORCID and its successful integration. More such meetings to bridge the EAST and the WEST will enable the academic community to exchange more ideas, encourage more participation, and help in successful global implementation of such academic initiatives. The program committee in Japan organized a very informative meeting, and it was wonderful to be a part of this initiative.
