ORCID’s GPP Launch Partners
The GPP is an exciting global initiative made possible by the generosity of our partners.
AIP Publishing, American Physical Society, Cambridge University Press, CCC, Elsevier, Hindawi, IOP Publishing, PLOS, Taylor & Francis, and Wiley have once again demonstrated their commitment to ORCID by forgiving all or part of their original start-up loans to ORCID. These generous contributions — totalling just under US$ 1M — have made the establishment of ORCID’s Global Participation Fund, which, along with the ORCID-funded Membership Equity Program, form ORCID’s Global Participation Program (GPP).
The GPP is an exciting initiative that aims to increase participation in interconnected research infrastructure in currently under-represented regions, with the ultimate aim to improve the visibility of researchers and reduce administrative burden on both researchers and institutions around the world.

“Persistent identifiers, like ORCID IDs, are critical to making open scholarship work. They ensure that authors everywhere receive credit for their research contributions. They also help organize and connect research outputs, which paves the way for further analysis and enables researchers to build upon discoveries and find solutions to global challenges. AIP Publishing’s mission is to empower researchers and break barriers to open, equitable research communication. ORCID’s Global Participation Program helps us advance these objectives.”
— Alix Vance, CEO, AIP Publishing
About American Physical Society—The American Physical Society is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities. APS represents more than 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry in the United States and throughout the world.
“At Cambridge we pioneer and embrace diverse, inclusive approaches to the delivery of research to reach the widest possible audience. Unlocking the potential of research to aid understanding is an urgent global challenge that needs a truly global effort. We look forward to seeing the Global Participation Program extend the reach and impact of work from researchers around the world.”
— Brigitte Shull, Senior Vice-President, USA, Cambridge University Press
“CCC is a long-time advocate for the creation, development, and proliferation of identifiers, including ORCID. On behalf of my CCC and Ringgold colleagues, we’re proud to support this important effort toward expanding inclusivity in the scholarly ecosystem.”
— Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC
“We all want to build a more inclusive research ecosystem. Bringing more universities from lower income countries into ORCID is a critical, system-wide step in achieving this, enabling researchers across developing country institutions to get credit for their work and grow their institution’s visibility as contributors to the body of research. Elsevier is proud to support ORCID’s Global Participation Fund as part of our capacity-building contributions, such as Research4Life and the Elsevier Foundation through which we contribute to meeting the UN SDGs.”
— Ylann Schemm, VP Corporate Responsibility, Elsevier
About Hindawi Limited—Hindawi Limited is one of the world’s largest open access publishers with a portfolio of 240 plus academic research journals across all areas of science and medicine. Each peer-reviewed journal has been developed in partnership with academic researchers, acting as editors, to fit the targeted communities they serve. By placing the researcher at the heart of everything we do and driven by a mission to maximize the impact of research through openness, we work with the broader research community and forge collaborations with publishers and organizations that pave the way for a more open scholarly ecosystem.
“Driven by our purpose to expand the world of physics, we have a long-standing commitment to making science more open. ORCID’s Global Participation Program is key to helping us achieve a more diverse and equitable global research community. We’re looking forward to working with ORCID to break down the barriers that many researchers face and increase worldwide participation in science.”
— Antonia Seymour, Chief Executive, IOP Publishing
“PLOS is happy to support ORCID’s Global Participation Program which is closely aligned with our own goals to increase inclusion in research sharing, discovery, and re-use. We must all take intentional actions to address power imbalances and the legacy of devaluing knowledge from particular groups or regions. Persistent identifiers such as ORCID are vital to realizing the opportunity of a digital-first Open Science future. Equitable participation must be an integral part of this if we are to realize the full benefits for science and society as a whole.”
— Niamh O’Connor, Chief Publishing Officer, PLOS
“Quality research from the Global South is growing apace. Yet researchers from these regions are not getting the recognition and the opportunities this can bring, and the entire research ecosystem is poorer for this. We are therefore delighted to partner on this important new initiative, ensuring more researchers can benefit from ORCID participation.”
— Nitasha Devasar, Vice President for India, South Asia, and Africa at Taylor & Francis Group
“Research is a universal endeavour. We know that the world is a better place when all individuals contribute to the global exchange of knowledge in an equitable way. Wiley is proud to stand alongside our many peers in support of ORCID, with the mutual goal to build a more trustworthy and inclusive future. Through efforts like these, we are honouring our centuries-long legacy of enhancing discovery and unlocking human potential.”
— Jay Flynn, Wiley Executive Vice President and General Manager, Research
