ORCID in the Wild featuring PREreview

May 30 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm BST

Join us for ORCID in the Wild, where we discover the vast array of ORCID adoption within the scholarly community. Like seeds scattered by the wind, ORCID has taken root across the globe, sprouting connections and nurturing collaborations.

In this series, we showcase ORCID use cases from around the community, and we are delighted to feature PREreview in the inaugural session. Register for this session to learn about PREreview’s integration with ORCID that gives researchers the ability to link their open preprint reviews to their ORCID records, highlighting their academic service, reducing the effort required to manually maintain their profiles and allowing that data to be reused by any of the 5,400+ other systems that are interconnected with ORCID.

Anna Hatch, PhD, Program Officer for Open Science Strategy at the Howard Hughes Medical
Institute will also join to discuss how PREreview and ORCID work together for her institution.
