October 16th is the fifth anniversary of ORCID’s launch and we can’t wait to start the celebrations!
What a long way we have come! We are really excited to be reaching this milestone supported by more than 700 members from all disciplines and regions, many working group participants, a very engaged Board, and a fantastic dedicated ORCID team. Not to mention all the researchers, associations, funders, publishers, research institutions, vendors and others who continue to help us make the research world a better place, one persistent identifier at a time.
We couldn’t have done it without your support and to say thank you we are delighted to share a special ORCID@5 video, with contributions from our staff and the community . We hope you like it!
To get you in the mood for partying, we’ve also created an ORCID@5 Playlist with songs about identity, persistence, and uniqueness!
Look out for more birthday celebrations on the day itself, and please share your ORCID pictures, songs, anecdotes, and birthday wishes with everyone on Twitter using the hashtag #ORCID5.
Please join us in celebrating ORCID@5 and let’s get this party started!
