The core of our strategic focus for 2022–2025 is to build commitment to and engagement with ORCID as an essential element of the research experience, both for researchers and members.
In early 2021 we embarked on an intensive member and user value research project to revisit the strategy we published in 2020: our 2025 Vision. We wanted to ensure we were on the right track to deliver what our community needs most from us. We discovered we were nearly there, though we felt there was an opportunity to refine the strategic themes and flesh out the priorities, which is what we did with the ORCID Board in July 2021.
This document, From Vision to Value: ORCID’s 2022–2025 Strategic Plan, is the outcome of our research, reflection, and refinement. We are proud to share it with you and hope it inspires our member organizations to engage with us as they plan their own work and activities.
2022–2025 Strategic Themes
In order to build commitment to and engagement with ORCID as an essential element of the research experience, we have identified four major strategic themes for the next three years:
- Increasing Value to Members
- Increasing Value to Researchers
- Increasing Global Participation
- Upholding Trust and Integrity
In From Vision to Value you will find some key insights we learned from our research with member organizations and researchers, as well as the top priorities within each theme.
Together, these themes, insights, and priorities form a framework by which we will organize and prioritize our activities across the organization, as well as to measure and communicate our progress with each other and our community.
