***apologies for cross-posting***
as most of you are probably aware of, there is a grant opportunity from
the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to support projects of adoption and
integration of ORCID into local profile systems such as a CRIS or an
As technical members of the DSpace Community we will be very interested
to work with international partners on this topics. Below we have
drafted some integration scenarios that highlight how this grant
opportunity could support new cool features for DSpace and the
DSpace-CRIS addon (http://cilea.github.com/dspace-cris/).
This grant could also be the opportunity to adopt DSpace-CRIS in your
existent DSpace installation to provide Researcher showcases / profile
systems for your University/ Research Institution.
The deadline for submitting proposals, August 31, 2013 is approaching
fast: please contact me if interested.
ORCID Integration Scenarios:
- Authentication: We propose to develop an authentication
plugin for DSpace to allow researchers to login in their IR using their
- ORCID creation and/or association: We propose to develop an
integration between the DSpace-CRIS open source addon used to managed
the researchers profile inside the IR and the ORCID authority. The
researcher will be able to request a new ORCID sending the information
already available in her IR profile or associate an existent ORCID to
her profile. In the case of new researchers or researchers that have not
yet created a personal profile in the IR, supplying an existent ORCID
the profile information will be prefilled with the data coming from ORCID.
- Keeping profiles synchronized: We propose to develop an
integration between the DSpace-CRIS addon and ORCID to allow the
researcher to easily keep synchronized profiles in IR and ORCID. The
system will suggest to retrieve data from ORCID in case any update on
the ORCID side is detected or send update to ORCID after editing of the
- Update publication list on ORCID: the researcher will be able
to send some of her publication records from the IR to her ORCID profile
Import publication records in the IR from ORCID: the researcher will be
able to select one or more publications to import in the IR from the
bibliographic records available in ORCID.
These and other scenarios could be taken into consideration for a
collaboration to apply for the grant.
