Celebrate Open Access Week with ORCID! In addition to releasing our annual public data file, we are hosting two webinar sessions to showcase a few open access organizations. 

On October 25, KAUST, INFLIBNET India, PKP, and ARDC will join us to share how their organizations contribute to open access and how they use ORCID. We will also discuss the importance of open science infrastructure and how freely accessible works improve the ability to share data. 

Time will be reserved for questions at the end of the session. 

To celebrate 10 years of ORCID, 10 lucky registrants will win an ORCID 10th Anniversary swag bundle! To enter the giveaway, opt-in at registration.*
