About the ORCID DE Monitor

The ORCID DE Monitor was developed as part of the project "ORCID DE - Consolidation of the ORCID Information Infrastructure in Germany" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) from 2020 to June 2022 (2nd funding phase).

The aim is to create an application that analyzes the use and dissemination of the personal identifier ORCID and related information, such as providing repositories, metadata formats used, and technical platforms, including a time-based representation of developments, and to make the evaluations available to the public.

In particular, the analyses are based on data from the Bielefeld Academic Search Engine (BASE), the DOI registration agencies Crossref and DataCite, as well as metadata from the person records of the Gemeinsame Normdatei (GND) of the German National Biography.

The ORCID DE Monitor is currently under construction, so not all evaluations are active yet.

ORCID DE project partners are DataCite, the German National Library, the Helmholtz Open Science Office at the GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences, the Hannover Technical Information Library (TIB), and Bielefeld University Library. The project was initiated by the German Initiative for Network Information (DINI).
